    N.J. lawmaker introduces bill to repeal dog census law

    TRENTON — A New Jersey assemblywoman thinks it's time to do away with the state's dog census law.

    Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande has introduced a bill to repeal the 70-year-old law that requires towns to count pet dogs at least every two years.

    The Republican from Freehold says the law is outdated and mostly ignored.

    It was enacted at a time when rabies was a real threat to household pets and was seen as a way to make sure owners got pets their shots.

    But it's gone largely unenforced as the rabies threat has declined and local governments have become reluctant to spend the money to send someone door-to-door.

    State health department figures show that only 81 of the state's 566 municipalities did a count in 2009.

    My town does it every year and they slap you with heavy fines if your animals aren't licensed.

    I got a summons in the mail for having an unlicensed. I went to go take care of it today by showing them my cat was licensed. It turns out my ex had licensed their two cats under my name. The ACO wants written proof the cats now reside somewhere else.

    "Hi crazy abusive ex that almost put me in the hospital,

    Can you please write a letter to the animal control officer letting them know your cats now live in VA with your crazy ass?"

    KTHXBAI"

    UGH.
