YORK COUNTY — Dog owners beware: If you live in York County and have an unlicensed or unvaccinated pooch, you could face a fine.

Dog wardens will be canvassing York County homes in the coming weeks to ensure that all dog owners have their pets’ licenses and rabies vaccinations up-to-date, according to the county Treasurer’s Office.

All dogs 3 months and old must have their licenses up to date by Jan. 1 each year. Licenses cost $6.50 for each spayed or neutered dog and $8.50 for other dogs. Those licenses cost $4.50 and $6.50, respectively, for dogs owned by older adults or persons with disabilities.

In addition, all dogs and non-feral cats 3 months and older must be vaccinated against rabies.

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

Licenses can be purchased in-person from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the York County Treasuer’s office, 28 E. Market St. Room 126 in York, by mail at the same address, or online at doglicenses.us/PA/York.
