Dinniman: Dog Licenses for 2015 Now Available
WEST CHESTER (December 17) – State Senator Andy Dinniman reminded dog owners that Dogs Licenses for 2015 are now available for purchase and that state law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed by January 1 of each year.
An annual dog license is $8.50 or $6.50 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.
Dog licenses are available at the Chester County Treasurer’s office located at 313 W. Market St., Suite 3202 in West Chester or online at www.padoglicense.com.
“Keeping your dog’s license current is one of the most important parts of responsible dog ownership,” Dinniman said. “If your dog gets lost, a license is the best way for animal control or shelters to identify the dog and get him or her home safely.”
“Furthermore, licensing fees help keep shelters up and running and support the important work of the Dog Law Enforcement Office, which is responsible for inspecting kennels, enforcing humane regulations and cracking down on puppy mills,” Dinniman added.
