DOG WARDENS TO CONDUCT LICENSE, RABIES COMPLIANCE CHECKS

Body

The State Department of Agriculture reminds dog owners that a license is one of the best ways to ensure a lost dog is returned home safely.
 
Under Pennsylvania law, all dogs three months or older, must be licensed by January 1st of each year.  The fee is $6.50 for each spayed or neutered dog, and $8.50 for other dogs.  Older dogs, and persons with disabilities, may purchase a license for $4.50 for spayed or neutered dogs and $6.50 for others.
 
Additionally, all dogs and non-feral cats (three months of age and older) must be vaccinated against rabies.  Booster vaccinations must be administered periodically to maintain lifelong immunity.
 
Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.
 
Licenses may be purchased through Treasurer Adams at 633 Court Street, Reading or by by calling 610/478-6640.
