County Treasurer Reminds Dog Owners that Licenses are Past Due

Treasurer Linda Marchalk reminds all Schuylkill County dog owners that 2018 dog licenses are now past due.

March is Dog Awareness Month and if you have not already purchased your license, Marchalk asks that you purchase your dog license now. State dog wardens began canvassing the local communities this month and continue throughout the year. Dog wardens can issue citations which are a summary offense for failure to license a dog and dog owners can be cited to pay a maximum fine of $300 for each unlicensed dog. State law requires that all dogs three months or older be licensed by January 1.

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. Licenses are available at the Schuylkill County Treasurer’s Office or your local dog agent. For your convenience, you can also go online at to purchase your license. A list of 2018 Dog Agents and a downloadable application is available online at
