What are Pennsylvania’s dog licensing requirements?

  • All dogs, three months or older must be licensed by January 1 of each year and should wear their license on their collar at all times.
  • An annual license is $8.50 and a lifetime license is $51.50.  If the dog is spayed or neutered, the annual fee is $6.50 and lifetime is $31.50.  Prior to obtaining a lifetime license, a dog must have a microchip or tattoo.  Discount licenses are available to older adults and people with disabilities.
  • All dogs and non-feral cats, three months of age and older, must be vaccinated against rabies.
  • Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.
  • Licenses may be purchased through the Beaver County Treasurers Office @ 724-728-5700.

Why get your dog licensed?

  • If your dog gets lost, a current license is the fastest way for your dog to be reunited with you.
  • Stray dogs without current licenses can be taken to shelters far from their homes and adopted after 48 hours if no owner is identified.
