DOG HEALTH AND SAFETY RULES
Dogs must be licensed each year (New Jersey State Law). Rabies vaccination must be current through October 1, 2018. Violators of the Borough Codes may be subject to a fine. All dogs, seven months of age or older must be licensed every year. An application is on the reverse side of this form.
All dogs must be Ieashed or confined to the owner's property. Dogs are not allowed in public buildings, restaurants, or stores (guide dogs excepted). Dogs may not damage, deface or deposit waste on the property of others or on public property. The "pooper-scooper" law is in effect. Dogs may not annoy neighbors by continuous barking or howling.
You may call The Glen Ridge Police Department at 973-748-5400 with a dog complaint.
Clean and plentiful water is important to our families, our environment, our economy and our quality of life.
Did you know that animal waste from pets can pollute our waters? When left on the ground, pet waste is washed by rain and melting snow and ice into storm drains that carry it to our rivers, lakes, the ocean and drinking water. Animal waste contains a high concentration of nutrients as well as bacteria and disease-causing microorganisms that can cause problems.
Pet owners or anyone who takes your pet for walks must properly dispose of the waste by picking it up, wrapping it and either placing it in the trash or flushing it unwrapped down the toilet.
