September is cat license renewal month for Lawrence Township residents. Any cat over the age of 7 months is required by law to be licensed. Licenses are renewed in the Municipal Clerk’s office. Proof of current rabies certification and proof of spaying or neutering (if applicable) must be presented when a license is purchased by mail or in person. The fee is $11 if spayed or neutered and $14 if not spayed or neutered. Effective Dec. 1, a delinquent fee will be assessed in the amount of $5 plus $1 per month for each month delinquent.
