Dog wardens in Pennsylvania will check vaccines for both cats and dogs, as well as licenses for dogs in 26 counties this April.

In our region, Centre, Clearfield, Huntingdon, Jefferson, and Somerset counties are scheduled to be checked.

Pennsylvania law requires all dogs three months or older to be licensed by January 1 of each year.
Violators may be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.

According to the PA Department of Agriculture, Pennsylvania law requires all dogs three months or older to be licensed by January 1 of each year. The fee is $6.50 for each spayed or neutered dog and $8.50 for other dogs. Older adults and persons with disabilities may purchase a license for $4.50 for spayed or neutered dogs and $6.50 for others.

Additionally, all dogs and non-feral cats three months of age and older must be vaccinated against rabies. Booster vaccinations must be administered periodically to maintain lifelong immunity.

April’s canvassing schedule is as follows:
April 2-6: Bradford, Clearfield, Cumberland, Jefferson, and Westmoreland counties.
April 9-13: Berks, Centre, Clarion, Franklin, Luzerne, and Westmoreland counties.
April 16-20: Carbon, Dauphin, Delaware, Elk, Huntingdon, Lycoming, Perry, Somerset, and York counties.
