Free Rabies Clinic

Health Department


        Mayor Vergano is pleased to announce that Wayne Township will be holding a Free Rabies Clinics for both dogs and cats on Sunday, May 5th at Captain Kilroy Memorial Park, located at 6 Concord Place from 9 am to 12 pm.

        We will be adhering to any CDC and state guidelines for COVID protocols. Dogs must be restrained with a non-retractable leash to allow quick and easy transfer to the veterinarian or technician for vaccination. Cats must be transported in suitable carriers or containers to prevent escape.

        Proof of 2024 license is required. Residents having failed to license their dogs/cats for 2024 may do so after Wayne’s Rabies Clinic by going to and using the Citizen Self-Service Portal. If your dog is spayed or neutered, proof is needed to obtain the  reduced fee of $13.20. A license fee of $l6.20 is expected if your dog has not been spayed or neutered. License fee for cats is $8.00 for neutered/spayed and $15.00 for non-neutered/non-spayed. A $10.00 late fee will be charged for each animal anytime after February 15th. Copies of all certificates showing proof of rabies, spaying or neutering will be returned.

        We are green! Just a reminder the Health Department will not be mailing dog/cat license renewals for the 2025 licensing year. All renewal reminders will be emailed once you register online. Residents are asked to go to and use the Citizen Self-Service Portal to register your pet.
