HOBOKEN - Dog runs have reopened, following months of closure over COVID-19 concerns. In order to get into the dog run, pets are supposed to be licensed. In order to get a license, pets must be up to date on their vaccines.
With veterinarians also digging out from restrictions, the timing couldn't be better for the City of Hoboken to host its annual free rabies vaccination clinic for both dogs and cats. Itself delayed due to COVID-19, this year's clinic takes place on Saturday, June 27 from 11 am until 2 pm at the Multi-Service Center (124 Grand Street). All dogs must be secured with a leash or in a carrier.
Residents will still need to pay the fee to license their dogs. Any dog whose rabies vaccination expires at any point in the 2020 licensing cycle will not be able to obtain a 2020 dog license. If you do not need a vaccination to renew your dog license, you can renew it by filling out this form and mailing it in or visiting in person at the Bureau of Vital Statistics (124 Grand Street) during the week.
The City of Hoboken asks that the number of human attendees per pet family be limited so that adequate social distancing can be observed. Face masks are required to be worn indoors at the clinic.
