State dog wardens to canvass homes in York County during month of May

YORK COUNTY, Pa. — During the month of May, state dog wardens will be canvassing homes in York County to make sure dog owners have current licenses and rabies vaccinations for their dogs.

Dogs three months or older must 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, dogs and non-feral cats — also three months or older — must be vaccinated against rabies. Booster vaccinations must be administered periodically to maintain lifelong immunity.

The county says violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.

Licenses can be purchased in person at the county treasurer’s office between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., by mail to York County Treasurer at 28 East Market Street, Room 126, York, PA 17401 or online here.
