Dog Licensing

2018 Dog Licensing Campaign

The Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement will be conducting a license canvas in Delaware County on April 18th.  Multiple wardens will be going door to door educating dog owners as well as checking the status of their dog licenses and rabies vaccinations.

Your best friend’s best chance to make it home safely is to be properly licensed.

All dogs 3 months of age or older are required by Pennsylvania law to have a current dog license. Failure to have your dog licensed may result in a fine of up to $300 (per dog).
