Upper Township Officials would like to remind residents that no dogs are allowed on the beach now until September 30, 2016 by township ordinance. Because there have been recent complaints of violators on the beach, Shore Animal Control will be patrolling daily and giving issuing summons for all violators found on Strathmere beaches.

Officials would like to remind residents that there are several beaches in the county which have hours for dogs including Stone Harbor, Wildwood  and Lower Township. Anyone wishing to report violations can contact animal control directly at 1-800-351-1822

Beach Etiquette for Dog Owners on Dog Allowed Beaches.

 - Always keep your dog leashed when there is a leash law. There is a maximum of 6 feet lead on    any leash, so free rein leashes, must be controlled.

 - Always clean up after your dog by using a poop bag or pooper scooper and disposing in the    proper trash cans.

 - Do not let your dog visit with other beach-goers or dogs, unless welcomed and invited.
