Allegheny County dog wardens will be going from door to door to check for licenses and proof of rabies vaccines from May 14 to May 25.
Back in April we posted a story about dog wardens going door to door to check for proof of licensure and rabies vaccinations. Wardens have been out and about doing just that in neighboring counties. Allegheny county wardens will be out from May 14 to May 25. Be sure you dog is licensed and that you have a rabies vaccine tag.
You can fill out an online dog license application on the County’s Dog License site.
Pennsylvania law requires dogs that are three months or older to be licensed, which owners can do for a fee of $6.50 for neutered dogs and $8.50 for others at county treasurers’ offices. Rabies vaccines are required and must be kept up to date. Violators can be fined up to $300 per violation plus court costs, according to the a release issued in April.
The wardens will leave written notice when people aren’t home and won’t enter homes or buildings without owners’ permission, according to the release.
