Mercer County residents urged to buy dog licenses

MERCER, PA.

Mercer County Treasurer Virginia Richardson reminds all dog owners to purchase a 2014 dog license as soon as possible.

She said she has received a notice from Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Dog Law Enforcement Office that the state dog wardens will be canvassing the county in April.

State law requires all dogs 3 months or older be licensed each year. Failure to license a dog could result in a maximum fine of $300 for each unlicensed dog.

“If your dog gets lost, a current license is the fastest way for it to be reunited with you,” Richardson said.

An annual license is $8.45, and a lifetime license is $51.45. If the animal is spayed or neutered, the annual fee is $6.45, and lifetime is $31.45. Senior citizens and people with disabilities may purchase a license for $4.45 for spayed or neutered dogs and $6.45 for others.

Licensing fees support the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Dog Law Enforcement Office, which ensures the welfare of breeding dogs and puppies in commercial breeding kennels, regulates dogs classified as dangerous, and oversees annual licensing and rabies vaccinations for dogs.

Licenses may be purchased through Richardson’s office by calling 724-662-4440; mailing to Mercer County Treasurer, 104 Court House, Mercer, PA, 16137; or by visiting www.mcc.co.mercer.pa.us,

They also may be purchased at these county locations: Ace Fix-it Hardware, Grove City; Bill’s Field and Stream, Transfer; Country Crossing Gifts and Collectibles, Leesburg; Greenville Agway, Greenville; Grove City Agway, Grove City; Hermitage Agway, Hermitage; Hillcrest Flynn Pet Funeral Home, Hermitage; Hurlbert Hardware, Greenville; Sandy Lake Mills, Sandy Lake; Sereday’s True Value, West Middlesex; Shenango Valley Animal Shelter, Hermitage; Tomeo Farms, Mercer; Twig’s Reloading Den, Mercer; Wagler’s Camp Perry, Clarks Mills; West Salem Township building, Greenville; and Wilmington Township building, New Wilmington.

I hope one county soon starts making cat owners buy licenses for their cats. Where I live people let their cats run free. It's time to make all things equal
