Pet Information

DOG AND CAT LICENSES are required for all pets in Edison and surrounding towns.  They are issued annually and expire December 31st of each year.  In Edison, please obtain your dog/cat license application from the Health Dept. 2nd floor in the Muncipal Complex, or by clicking HERE.  For all other towns, please contact the Municipal Clerk's office for license application information.

All dogs must be on leashes at all tiimes when outside of your fenced in property and supervised.  You are required by law to pick up dog feces after your dog.

We suggest that your dog also wear an ID tag on its collar at all times in case it gets lost.  Microchipping can also ensure your dog is returned home quickly.

Cat owners are encouraged to keep cats as INDOOR pets and be sure they are spayed/neutered.  The Edison Animal Shelter can provide informaiton on low cost spay/neuter.  We have an active TNR program for feral/community cats and are trying to keep the population down.

It is now NJ State LAW that no animals be left outside for more than 30 minutes if the temperature is below 32 degrees or above 90 degrees.  They also need access to fresh, potable water and adequate shelter at all times.  Tethers/Cable ties outs must be at least 15 feet long.

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!  Please call Animal Control 732-248-7278 if you suspect
