Dog Registrar


The Dog Registrar is responsible for ensuring that dogs in the Township are licensed. Pet owners must license their dog with the Dog Registrar each year.

In order for us to issue the license, each dog must have a valid rabies vaccination. A vaccination that expires before October 31 of the calendar year is not considered to be valid. 

For your convenience, Hopewell Township offers a Rabies Clinic each year. For 2017, the Clinic will be held at the Hopewell Municipal Garage on Saturday, March 11 from 12-2 PM. 

Cumberland County also additional information on rabies vaccinations.

Please note that pet owners who do not license their dogs by certain dates will be required to pay a late fee.
