Dog license checks coming to Montour County

— DANVILLE — Owners of unlicensed dogs in Montour County beware — buy licenses or face penalties.

State dog wardens will canvass the county in March to check if owners have licensed their dogs. They plan to go door-to-door, according to Montour County Treasurer Jesse Kline.

This will be part of a statewide canvas beginning March 1.

Officers from the Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement, of the state Department of Agriculture, will place signs reminding people about having an up-to-date license at key intersections in the Danville and Washingtonville areas, Kline said.

So far this year, Kline’s office has sold 1,200 dog licenses.

Last year, a total of 2,539 licenses were sold in the county, including 1,924 individual licenses and 615 licenses to seniors and disabled people.

The county receives $1.45 from the state for each license sold.

License costs are $8.45 for a male or a female dog or $6.45 for a neutered male or a spayed female. Fees for a senior citizen, which is someone 65 or older, or a disabled person are $6.45 for a male or a female and $4.45 for a neutered male or a spayed female.

A lifetime dog license costs $51.45 for a male or a female and $31.45 for a neutered male or spayed female. The senior citizen and disabled person rates are $31.45 for a male or a female and $21.45 for a neutered male or a spayed female. Owners wanting a lifetime license need to provide documentation of a microchip or tattoo, Kline said.

Dog license applications can be downloaded from the county’s website at The owner can mail the completed application to Kline’s office and receive the license within a few days by mail.

Kline’s office, in the county courthouse on Mill Street, is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
