If dogs are lost or stolen, a license can help make sure they get home safely. The fees collected through dog licensing are used to fund dog wardens.

NOTICE: Dog owners can go online to obtain new or renew license without the need to physically come to the treasurer’s office; although the Treasurer's Office will continue selling licenses, the new online system will provide an alternative method. For more information about dog licensing in Pennsylvania, go to: www.licenseyourdogpa.pa.gov.
