Notice of Dog Bite
Please provide a phone # or email if additional information is needed
You MUST confine your pet for ten days [from the
date of bite] within a pen or other enclosure on your property, separate and apart
from other animals and humans, N.J.R.S. 26:4-82 and 26:4-85. A Notice of
Quarantine will be forwarded to you by the Morris Township Heath Department.
Failure to immediately comply with this notice or the Notice of Quarantine
will result in the enforcement of Local Ordinance Chapter 101-21.
Your pet MUST remain under quarantine until the Health Officer signs the Notice
of Release and this will be issued only after a veterinarian has examined the
animal following the 10th day of quarantine. Call the Health Department
973.326.7390 to schedule an appointment for the Notice of Release form.
Should your pet die within the quarantine period, you must immediately notify the
Health Department. Do NOT dispose of the dead animal, as the Health
Department must know if the animal died from rabies.
