Census will start May 15th. Anyone without a license will incur a $50 fine with license fees.


Strays – Strays are picked up by the Animal Control Officer and taken to the animal shelter, a veterinarian (if injured), or disposed of if they have died.

Missing Animals – Animal Control is committed to returning dogs and cats to their owners.  Animals picked up that do not have license tags identifying them, or those with missing collars, are taken to the shelter. Any dog or cat found should be reported to the Township so we can attempt to return the animal to its owner.

Leaving food and water out for animals can attract unwanted wildlife and insects.  If a cat or dog is being fed, it’s presumed to be owned by whomever is feeding it after a period of fifteen days.
