Pennsylvania State Law requires all dogs, three months or older, to be licensed in the county where they are maintained. New tags should be displayed beginning Jan. 1, 2014. Owners of dogs without licenses are subject to penalties. A license serves an important role in helping return a dog to its owner if it should become lost or stray.
License prices for 2014 are as follows: Productive males or females are $8.45, and unproductive males or females are $6.45. Senior citizens can purchase a license for a productive male or female for $6.45 and an unproductive male or female for $4.45.
