The Lyndhurst Health Department holds two free rabies vaccination clinics during the month of January. Please check the Township website on the Home Page for announcements and dates. As a reminder for when your dog or cat needs to be vaccinated, view the information below.

  • Pets vaccinated in 2014 are due for vaccination in 2017.
  • Pets vaccinated in 2015 are due for vaccination in 2018.
  • Pets vaccinated in 2016 are due for vaccination in 2019.

Dog and cat licenses are to be renewed every year during the month of January. Any renewal issued after January 31st is subject to a $10 late fee. Rabies vaccinations may not expire before November 1st of that licensing year.

“Project Backpack” - Back to School Supplies

On behalf of the Lyndhurst Health Department, we would like to still hold our “Project Backpack” School supplies for our Lyndhurst Residents.  At this time we will be giving out backpack and school supplies ONLY.  We will NOT be giving out uniforms, and will not except any used uniforms at this time due to COVID-19.  We will start to give supplies out on Monday August 17th, 2020.  You will have to call us first at 201-804-2500 to let us know what supplies you could use and then we will give you a pick up time.  Our building is still closed to the public so you must call prior to coming by.
