Can I renew my dog license before January of the year that it is due?

You cannot renew a dog license until January of the year the license is due.

To avoid late fees, licenses must be renewed by February 29th by 4 pm of the year the license is due. After February 29th, the initial late fee is $5. $5 is added to the initial late fee for each additional month that it is late.

Please note: Dog licenses for Hamilton Township residents will be issued by the Division of Health's Animal Shelter located at 2100 Sylvan Avenue. For more information, please call the Hamilton Township Animal Shelter at 609-890-3550.
