Dog & Cat Licenses


All dogs and cats in the Township of Mine Hill are required to be licensed each year by the Municipal Clerk’s Office.  The Dog license year is February 1st through January 31st; the Cat license year is March 1st through February 28th (or 29th).  All animals must have a Rabies Certificate valid through November 30th of the licensing year in order to be licensed.  New pets must be licensed within 10 days of coming home to Mine Hill Township; renewals for the upcoming year must be processed by the end of the current licensing year to avoid late charges.  Renewal reminders are sent out each December.

To register a new pet, visit the Municipal Clerk’s Office or provide the following information via postal mail:

Owner’s First and Last Name
Owner’s Address and Telephone Number
Pet’s Name
Pet’s Age and Date of Birth, Gender, Breed*, hair length and color, and whether or not the pet is spayed/neutered
Proof of Rabies with valid expiration date as noted above
Check (payable to Mine Hill Township) or cash in the appropriate amount** as follows:

Spayed or Neutered Dog                      $11.20
Non-spayed or Non-Neutered Dog         $14.20
Spayed or Neutered Cat                       $10.00
Non-spayed or Non-Neutered Cat          $13.00

*If the pet is a “mixed breed” or “mutt,” please provide the breed name closest to what the animal looks like – this information is used to identify missing animals who are not wearing their license, so an accurate description is essential to the safety of your pet.

**This fee will be waived for Service Dogs with proof of valid registration from a Service Dog program.

To renew a pet’s registration, visit the Municipal Clerk’s Office or provide the following information via postal mail:

Owner’s Last Name

Please add a $10.00 per pet late fee if submitting your renewal after the end of the licensing year.***

***Renewals received via postal mail after the end of the licensing year that do not include the late fee will be returned without being processed.  Failure to return the renewal with the appropriate fee may result in additional penalties.
