The Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement (Department of Agriculture) will be conducting a license canvass in Chester County on May 17th. Multiple wardens will be going door to door educating dog owners as well as checking the status of their dog licenses and rabies vaccinations.
Love your dog, license your dog
All dogs three months or older must be licensed by January 1 of each year. Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.
An annual license is $8.50 and a lifetime license is $51.50. If the animal is spayed or neutered, the annual fee is $6.50 and lifetime is $31.50. Discounts are available to older adults and people with disabilities.
If your dog gets lost, a current license is the fastest way to get him back. The small license fee helps the millions of dogs in the state by funding the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement.
Locally you can purchase Regular and Senior Licenses at Diane’s Discount Pet Supplies at 1486 S. Hanover Street.
