The Borough of Midland Park Offers a FREE Rabies Vaccination Program
The Midland Park Board of Health will be holding its annual Rabies Program to give FREE Rabies Vaccinations on the second Monday in May from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. The program will take place at the Municipal Building, 280 Godwin Avenue in Midland Park, NJ. Dogs must be on leashes and cats must be in carriers; both dogs and cats are welcomed at any time. No retractable leashes can be used. Residents from other municipalities are welcome to bring their pets to the program.
Rabies vaccinations are required by the NJ Department of Health for ALL dogs and cats four months of age and older (but not less than 12 weeks of age). A booster vaccination should be given one year later and every three years thereafter. Please check the status of your dog’s or cat’s rabies vaccination records. Rabies is always a potential danger to humans and domestic animals if exposed to a rabid animal. Be proactive and have your pets vaccinated.
The Borough will also re-new and issue new animal licenses for the May to May licensing year at the free rabies clinic. If your animal is not in need of a vaccine you can renew or obtain a new license at the Borough Hall in person beginning May 1st, Monday – Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm.
For more information regarding licensing, please call the Borough Clerk at 201-445-5720.
