:Hello all, I am a new member of the NJHS, in fact I sent in payment about 3 hours ago...
: I have never had a permit for animals before, nor ever felt the need to ( won't get into that here), but I am turning over a new leaf, and as a new member of the NJHS I decided to comply. I currently have 2 animals that require permits, a blue and gold macaw, and a leopard gecko. The gecko is rather old, but the bird I got 2 years ago, and have lost all the paper work. I downloaded the app from the site, but am wondering if the state is going to give me a hard time with the permit because I had animals that should have been covered, but weren't. Also with no proof of purchase on a bird, this could get hairy. Has anybody ever dealt with this problem before? I included a letter explaining my situation to the state as well as the birds band number, but if this is going to cause more grief than it is worth maybe i should hold off? Thanks for any help you may or may not give ...

Don't worry about it, you'll be just fine. NJ is very understanding believe it or not, and they shouldn't give you a problem. They generally have a bit of an amnesty mentality where as long as it's not an animal that requres a special permit they won't really bother you.
Welcome to the society, I just recieved your membership application. I hope to meet you soon!
