Dog Licenses for 2014 Now Available, Says Everett
12/3/2013
MUNCY -- Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming) said today residents can now purchase dog licenses for 2014 from Lycoming County Treasurer Connie L. Rupert. State law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year.

“This is an important part of being a dog owner in Pennsylvania, and also enhances the safety of our four-legged friends,” said Everett. “The proceeds from these licenses also go toward animal shelters and vaccinations.”

An annual dog license is $8.45, or $6.45 if the animal is spayed or neutered. Lifetime licenses are available for dogs that have permanent identification like a microchip or tattoo. Older adults and people with disabilities may be eligible for discounts.

The dog license application is simple and only requests owner contact information and details about the dog being licensed, like name, age, breed and color.

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture offers these reasons for dog licensing:

It’s the law. All dogs three months and older must have a current license.

If your dog gets lost, a license is the best way to get him back. A license helps animal control and shelters identify your dog and get him back home safely.

The cost of a license is less than the penalty for being caught without one. Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed dog.
 
License fees support animal control. The annual fee you pay to license your dog helps keep shelters running and supports the work of the Dog Law Enforcement Office, which is responsible for ensuring the welfare of dogs, regulating dangerous dogs and overseeing annual licensing and rabies vaccinations.

To purchase the license, call the Lycoming County Treasurer’s Office at (570) 327-2246, Lycoming County Court House, 48 W. Third St., Williamsport. Also, residents can go online at www.doglicenseonline.com/states/pa/lycomingcounty/default.aspx.
