If you own a dog in Pennsylvania, you need to get a current 2023 dog license. All dogs three months or older must be licensed by January 1 of each year. If you purchased an annual license for your dog a few weeks or months ago, that license was a 2022 license and expired on December 31.
Prices depend on whether the dog is spayed or neutered, with discounts for senior citizens and people with disabilities. There is also an option to purchase a lifetime dog license (which requires the dog to be tattooed or micro-chipped).
To purchase a dog license online, go to the PA Dog License website at www.padoglicense.com. After payment, a proof of license can be printed, and the license and tag will be mailed to you the following business day.
To obtain duplicate tags, license transfers, a printed application, and more, visit the Treasurer’s Office page on the Delaware County website.
