2011 Dog Census This Summer

By Mayor Charles Daniel

New Jersey Statute 4:19-15.15 requires all municipalities to appoint a person to canvass residents every year or at least biannually. Califon’s last dog census was in 2009, so a census of the Borough's dogs will be  conducted this year.

The state also requires all dogs to be licensed and have  an up-to-date rabies vaccination. This census will be conducted during the months of June, July, and August by a Califon resident who will be going door to door. So, if your dog is not licensed, now is the time to do so. Applications are available at the Municipal Building (39 Academy Street). Contact Karen Mastro at 832-7850, ext. 204, with questions.
