2020 Free Rabies Clinic

       The Borough of Norwood will be holding its annual free rabies clinic on Tuesday January 28, 2020 at the DPW Garage located at 453 Broadway here in Norwood from 5:30PM – 7:00PM.  No appointment is required.  All animals will be treated on a first-come first-serve basis.

      All residents of Norwood are encouraged to take advantage of this free event if your cat or dog has a rabies vaccination that is due to expire anytime in the year 2020.  During the clinic, you will have an opportunity to license your pet if you haven’t done so already.  Those who had pets licensed in 2019 have had their application mailed to them already.  Pet License Applications are also available in the Clerk’s Office or on the Borough of Norwood’s website at www.Norwoodboro.org.  If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Rick in the Norwood Clerk’s Office at 201-784-2961.


      Please remember, the Borough of Norwood requires ALL CATS AND DOGS 7 months of age or older to be licensed annually through the municipality.  In order to obtain a license for a dog or cat for the year 2020, the owner must present proof that the dog or cat has been vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian, and that its IMMUNITY MUST EXTEND THROUGH AT LEAST TEN MONTHS OF THE TWELVE-MONTH LICENSE PERIOD for a license to be issued by the municipality.  In other words, in order to obtain a license for the year 2020, the rabies vaccination must not expire prior to November 1, 2020.  NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.
