[Adopted 3-10-1993 by Ord. No. 93-1 (Ch. 52, Art. II, of the 1982 Code)]
Vaccination requirements. No person shall own, keep, harbor or maintain any cat over six months of age within the Borough of Gibbsboro unless such cat is vaccinated. The provisions of this section do not apply to cats held in a veterinary establishment where cats are received or kept for diagnostic, medical, surgical or other treatments.
Vaccination. All cats shall be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian of the State of New Jersey in accordance with the latest Compendium of Animal Rabies Vaccines and Recommendations for Immunization, published by the National Association of the Public Health Veterinarians, except as provided for in § 96-14.
Any cat may be exempted from the requirements of such vaccination upon presentation of a veterinarian's certificate stating that because of an infirmity or other physical condition or a regimen of therapy, the vaccination of such cat shall be deemed inadvisable.
Any cat showing a change in disposition or an illness suggesting that it might be rabies, or any cat that bites another animal or human, may be required by the Health Officer, Animal Control Officer or designated agent to be quarantined for a period of 10 days. Owners or those harboring cats evidencing a change in disposition or an illness suggesting that it may be rabies may be required to have such animal examined by an approved veterinarian. Any cost incurred in quarantining such animal or veterinary service examination shall be paid for by the owner or harborer of such cat or cats.
