All Somerville cat owners MUST get a new or renewed cat license during the month of June. Licenses can be obtained in-person at Somerville Borough Hall, 25 West End Avenue, or through the mail. The pet license application can be found at www.somervillenj.org under the Clerk-Administrator's page for Licenses/Permits.
License fee is $11.00 for neutered/spayed cats or $14.00 for non-neutered/spayed cats.
NEW LICENSE will only be issued with proof of rabies vaccination and neuter/spay (if applicable).
RENEWAL of an existing license will require proof of new rabies vaccination if the current rabies vaccination expired during the previous year and is no longer valid.
If you renew a cat license after June 30 the late fees are $3.00 in July AND an additional $1.00 for each month thereafter.
There will be NO free rabies vaccination clinic in Somerville this June.
PetCo (Somerville Circle Shopping Center, Raritan, NJ) will have low cost ($19) rabies clinics on Sunday, June 9 and 23 from 3 – 5 PM. Faith Veterinary Clinic (trailer at Franklin Township Municipal Building, 475 DeMott Lane, Somerset) provides rabies vaccination every Tuesday from 9 AM - 4 PM for $56 ($30 for vaccination + $26 office visit fee).
If you pay by check or money order, please make payable to “Borough of Somerville”.
You can renew and pay on-line by going to this link: Cat License Renewals
The on-line payment option will be available starting June 1, 2019. Your license and tag will be mailed to your home. If necessary, proof of neutering and/or new rabies certificate can be faxed or emailed to me prior to the on-line payment. The fax number is (908) 725-6218.
