Schuylkill County Treasurer Reminds Dog Owners that 2016 Dog Licenses are Now Past Due

Schuylkill County Treasurer Linda Marchalk reminds all Schuylkill County dog owners that 2016 dog licenses are now past due. March is Dog Awareness Month. State law requires that all dogs three months or older be licensed by January 1. Failure to license a dog is a summary offense and a maximum fine of $300 for each unlicensed dog may be issued.
An annual license is $8.50 and a lifetime license is $51.50. If the dog is spayed or neutered, the annual fee is $6.50 while a lifetime license is $31.50. Discounts are available for senior citizens and people with disabilities. State Dog Wardens will begin canvassing in March and will continue throughout the year. Licenses are available at the Schuylkill County Treasurer’s Office or your local dog agent. For your convenience, you can also go online at www.padoglicense.com to purchase your license. A list of 2016 Dog Agents and a downloadable application is available online at www.co.schuylkill.pa.us/Offices/Treasurer/Treasurer.asp

“Not only is it a state law, but obtaining a license is a good way to ensure the safety of our pets,” said Marchalk. “If a dog is lost or stolen, a license can safely reunite them with the owner.”
