Brick Township will waive its $1 late fee for animal registrations after the Jan. 31 deadline since the township’s annual free rabies vaccination clinic will not be held until February.

The rabies clinic will be held Feb. 21 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the Drum Point Sports Complex. This is the only free clinic for the 2021 licensing year. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, registration was required this year, and capacity has been reached.

The township council this week suspended late fees of up to $1, which forms a grace period for pet owners for the month of February. The cost of registration normally carries a $1 late fee, per pet, for each month past January. Rabies vaccination is required for a license.
