BELLEFONTE — Richard A. Fornicola, Centre County Treasurer, has announced the 2019 dog licenses are now available for purchase at several areas in Centre County.
Fornicola said all types of annual dog licenses, including senior citizen, may be purchased at the below listed outlets. Lifetime licenses are also available at the treasurer's office.
A Permanent Identification Verification Form (provided by your veterinarian) is required for dogs that are microchipped. Those who prefer to have their dog tattooed must first come to the treasurer's office to purchase a license and obtain a number.
Licenses are available at the treasurer’s office and Lyons Kennels in Bellefonte; Mt. Nittany Veterinary Hospital in Lemont; Valley Home Supply in Milesburg; Hosterman & Stover Hardware in Milheim; Kephart’s Hardware in Philipsburg; Adrian’s Dog House in Pleasant Gap; Port Matilda Borough Building in Port Matilda; Mountaintop True Value in Snow Shoe; Halfmoon Township Office Building in Stormstown; and at the Patton Township Building and State College Borough Building in State College. Licenses will also be available at Wiscoy Pet Food Company in State College beginning Jan. 3.
State Law requires all dogs, three months or older, must be licensed in the county where they are maintained. New tags should be displayed beginning Jan. 1, 2019.
Dogs without licenses could subject their owners to penalties. A license serves a very
important purpose in helping to return a dog to its owner if it should happen to stray or become lost.
License prices for productive males or females are $8.50 while the fee for unproductive males or females is $6.50. Senior citizens may purchase a license for a productive male or female for $6.50 and an unproductive male or female for $4.50.
