2018 Dog License Information.

Director of Health, Dawn Cetrulo would like to remind Village of Ridgewood residents that 2018 dog license renewals are due during the month of June. A $20 late fee will be charged for all renewals received after June 30, 2018.

The health department will be sending renewals via email. If you do not have an email address please call our office and request a renewal to be mailed to you. Renewal applications may also be obtained by visiting our website at

New Jersey law requires owners of all dogs seven months of age or older to be registered with the town they live in. In order for the license to be issued, the owner must present proof that a licensed veterinarian has vaccinated the dog

against rabies and that the duration of immunity from that vaccination does not expire before May 1, 2021 for a 3 year license. To receive the discount for a spayed or neutered pet, proof must also be provided.

In conjunction with the rabies clinic, the Responsible Pet Ownership Committee will also be facilitating free micro-chip implantations and registration to the first 75 dogs at the clinic.

Bergen County Wellness Program

This program is designed to check on the well being of Bergen County residents living alone, over the age of 60, homebound, or disabled. The program is handled through the county's Reverse 911 System. Residents in the program will receive a phone call on predetermined days and times. A prerecorded message will advise participants to press a code that will indicate the participant is okay. The system also is installed with a busy/no answer call back feature. Residents must provide primary and secondary emergency contacts during the registration process. The system will respond only to touchtone telephones or through a Text Telephone (TTY). In order to register for the program, qualified residents should call the Bergen County Dept. of Human Services at 201/336-7400 to request an application. A brochure and sample application is available by clicking on the links below.
