Bureau Of Dog Law Officials To Canvass Fulton County
The Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement will canvass Fulton County from April 18-22, as part of its efforts to ensure Pennsylvania’s dogs are licensed, vaccinated and safe.
State law requires all dogs three months of age and older be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year. The fee is $6.45 for each spayed or neutered dog and $8.45 for other dogs. Senior citizens and persons with disabilities may purchase a license for $4.45 for spayed and neutered dogs and $6.45 other dogs.
Additionally, rabies vaccinations are required for all dogs and any cat (that enters a human dwelling) over three months of age.
The maximum fine per violation of the licensing requirement and rabies law is $300. Court costs may also be assessed.
Dog licenses are available through Fulton County Treasurer Monica K. Seville, 201 North Second Street, McConnellsburg, PA 17233. Phone 717-485-4454, and the district courts in Hustontown and Needmore.
According to officials with the bureau, ensuring your dog is licensed with up-to-date vaccinations is the surest way to keep your pet safe and healthy.
All dogs must be under control and are not permitted to run at-large. Complaints may be made to State Dog Law Enforcement Officer Tracy Miller 717-987-3370.
