Attention Pet Owners

A message from the Salisbury Township Animal Control Office:

Owning a pet is both a privilege and a pleasure. However, with this privilege there is also a responsibility to your neighbors and to the community. State law requires that ALL DOGS AND CATS THREE MONTHS OF AGE OR OLDER MUST HAVE A CURRENT VACCINATION AGAINST RABIES. Also, all dogs must have a current dog license which is available at the Lehigh County Government Center, most pet shops and at the Lehigh County Humane Society.

Pets are to be kept on their owner’s property and/or under their control at all times. Like any other domestic animal, Township ordinance DOES NOT ALLOW CATS TO RUN AT LARGE. Because cats are not required to be licensed, we recommend you have some form of identification on your cat like a collar with contact information, so that in the event that it is seized it can be returned to its proper owner. Otherwise, the animal will be impounded at the Lehigh County Humane Society, the facility currently contracted by the Township.

Thank you for your cooperation in being a good citizen and in keeping your pets safe.
