Mayor Jimmy Davis has announced that Bayonne will hold a free rabies vaccination clinic on Saturday, November 7, from 9 a.m. to noon,
on the lower level of DiDomenico-16th Street Park.

The lower level of the park is west of and downhill from West 16th Street and Avenue A. Due to COVID-19, this year’s clinic will not take place at the firehouse at 16th Street and Avenue A.

The clinic will handle dogs from 9 to 11 a.m., and cats
from 11 a.m. to noon.

The clinic is only for dogs and cats owned by Bayonne residents. The clinic will not vaccinate any other species.

All pet owners must wear face masks. Dogs must be on leashes and accompanied by an adult who will place the animal on the examination table.

Cats must be in pet carriers. Owners must clean up after their animals.

A licensed veterinarian will administer the vaccine. Unleashed animals and pets unaccompanied by adults will not be admitted.

Pets must be four months of age or older to participate in the clinic.

Dog and cat licenses must be renewed by Monday, February 1, 2021. A late fee of $5 will be added to the license fee, beginning Tuesday, February 2, 2021.

Residents with questions about licenses, rabies, and the clinic should call the City Clerk’s Office at 201-858-6029.
