New Emergency Notification System

posted Mar 1, 2016, 6:36 AM by Sustainable Voorhees

In an effort to provide more reliable communication with residents and businesses, Camden County and Voorhees Township have implemented the Swift911 emergency notification service. The Swift911 system allows officials to quickly alert constituents of utility outages, road closures, fires, floods, hurricanes, evacuations, and other emergency events via voice, text, fax, email, and CAP/IPAWS. As this is a new service, prospective users must register for Swift911 even if they currently receive notifications from other providers such as CodeRed or Nixle.

The following information is required to enroll in Swift911:
  • First and last name
  • Street address, city, state, and zip code (no P.O. boxes)
  • Primary telephone number
  • E-mail address
  • Secondary phone number(s) and address(es)
Because alerts are targeted geographically, a physical address is mandatory for Swift911 registration. Registered users can sign in at any time to update their contact information and notification preferences. Submitted information will be used for emergency communication purposes only.

Please use the portal below to register for Swift911 or update user information.

Licensing Your Pets

posted Feb 19, 2016, 7:52 AM by Sustainable Voorhees

Sustainable Voorhees encourages all pet owners to observe state and municipal laws regarding the annual licensing of dogs and cats over seven months of age. Compliance benefits you, your pet, and your community.

There are many reasons to license your pet:
  • The license tag can be used to quickly locate an owner and facilitate their pet's recovery.
  • Licensing is a way for the community to ensure that pets are vaccinated against rabies, a disease fatal to dogs and cats.
  • The fees from licensing stay in the community and help fund local clinics and animal control efforts.
  • The cost of a license is far less than the fine imposed for noncompliance.
Any Township resident who owns, possesses, or boards a dog or cat for more than 10 days must obtain a license. The license fee for a spayed (neutered) dog or cat is $12.00 while the fee for a non-spayed (non-neutered) dog or cat is $15.00. All licenses expire December 31 of the issued year regardless of the date they are obtained and must be renewed no later than January 31 of the following year. There is a $25.00 late fee for all pets whose licenses are renewed after May 10.

To obtain a dog license, you must show proof that the animal has a valid rabies vaccination that does not expire before November 1 of the licensing year. If a dog's rabies vaccination expires before November 1, the dog must be revaccinated before the Township can issue a license. To obtain a cat license, you must show proof that the animal has a current rabies vaccination at the time of licensure. Free rabies vaccinations are provided by the Township each year on the first Saturday in May.

For more information on how to license your pet, contact the Township Clerk at (856) 429-7757.
