— HARRISBURG — Pennsylvanians can now purchase dog licenses for 2014 from their county treasurers. State law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year.

An annual dog license is $8.45, or $6.45 if the animal is spayed or neutered. Lifetime licenses are available for dogs that have permanent identification like a microchip or tattoo. Older adults and people with disabilities may be eligible for discounts.

The dog license application is simple and only requests owner contact information and details about the dog being licensed, like name, age, breed and color.

For more information, including a list of county treasurers, visit or call the Dog Law Enforcement Office at (717) 787-3062.
