NJ Success: Delaware Township Limits Proposal Returned to First Reading

(Tuesday, October 02, 2012)

Yesterday evening, the Delaware Township (New Jersey) Board of Health considered dog ownership and breeding limits. However, due to the outreach of the New Jersey Federation of Dog Clubs, the American Kennel Club (AKC), and many concerned responsible dog breeders and owners from throughout New Jersey, the Board of Health decided to instead reassess its animal control needs and return the current proposal to first reading.
