Pennsylvanians can now purchase 2021 dog licenses from their county treasurers. State law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed by January 1 of each year.
An annual dog license is $8.50, or $6.50 if the animal is spayed or neutered. Lifetime licenses are available for dogs that have permanent identification like a microchip or tattoo. Dog owners who are older adults or have disabilities may be eligible for discounts.
The dog license application is simple and only requests the owner’s contact information and details about the dog, like name, age, breed and color. For Pike County residents, the application is accessible online at pikepa.org/treasurer. Completed applications may be mailed to the Pike County Treasurer’s Office, 506 Broad Street, Milford, PA 18337.
For more information, contact Pike County Treasurer John Gilpin at 570-296-3441.
