Erie County dog licenses on sale now

• Dec 2, 2017 at 10:00 PM

Erie County dog owners are reminded that they must purchase licenses for their dogs starting Dec. 1 through Jan. 31. The county dog warden says that officers will be going door-to-door to verify that all dogs are licensed. Those in violation will be issued citations.

State law requires that all dogs must be licensed by the time they become three months of age. All unlicensed dogs can be seized and impounded as allowed under the law. Offenders can be fined up to $250 plus court costs.

There is a $20 penalty for late purchases in addition to the standard $20 per license and a $100 penalty for a late kennel license in addition to the standard $100 fee.

State law also requires that the license must be displayed on the dog. Dog owners should keep in mind that a current dog license displayed on your dog is the best form of identification. If the tag is lost, a duplicate can be made for $5 at the dog pound.
