Dog Wardens to Conduct License, Rabies Compliance Checks in Armstrong County

Dog wardens will canvass homes in Armstrong County, the week of April 23 to ensure all dog owners have current licenses and rabies vaccinations for their dogs.

It’s the Law – All 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 unaltered dogs. Adults age 65+ and persons with disabilities may purchase a license for $4.50 for spayed or neutered dogs and $6.50 for unaltered.

Additionally, all dogs and non-feral cats (three months of age and older) must be vaccinated against rabies. Booster vaccinations must be administered periodically to maintain lifelong immunity.
Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.
