The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture  says dog wardens will conduct dog license compliance checks for current dog licenses at homes across Lebanon County beginning the last week of March and continuing throughout April.

By law in Pennsylvania, all dogs three months or older must be licensed by January 1st of each year. The fee is $6.45 for each spayed or neutered dog and $8.45 for other dogs. Older adults and persons with disabilities may purchase a license for $4.45 for spayed or neutered dogs and $6.45 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.

Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.
