CRANFORD, NJ – The Cranford Township Committee approved Ordinance 2017-07 at its meeting last month, which allows domestic pets to be licensed either annually or on a three-year basis.

For domestic dogs, there is a fee of $18 for a one-year license for a spayed or neutered dog, a fee of $54 for a three-year license for a spayed or neutered dog, a fee of $21 for a one-year license for a dog that is not spayed or neutered and a fee of $63 for a three-year license for a dog that is not spayed and neutered. These fees are in addition to the state-required payment for dog registration.

The same fees apply for cats as well. The ordinance was approved unanimously without comment by the committee.
