Upcoming Red Cross Blood Drive

Mark your calendars! A Red Cross Blood Drive will take place on Wednesday, June 30 from 2-7 p.m. at the Bordentown Township Senior Community Center. More information to come.

Cat Ordinance

The Township Committee has adopted a “Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Replace” cat ordinance in the Township. The ordinance will help control the feral cat population throughout the Township, and will be managed by the Township’s Animal Control Office. Read this article for more information.

A “Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Replace” ordinance will help to:

  1. Ensure feral cats are vaccinated, helping with disease spread among wild animals, pets, and people.
  2. Reduce new cats from filling the void of removed cats. This reduces kittens and disease.
  3. Limit the amount of food allowed to be used for feral cats, helping to reduce rodents, skunks, raccoons, and other opportunistic feeders.
