Dog License Tool Kit

Dog inside shelter with a man kneeling next to him.

Don’t let this be your dog in a shelter. Licensing your dog is the best way to bring them home should they get lost. Dog licenses are now available!

Protect your family from the hurt of a lost dog. A dog license dramatically increases your chances of getting them back if they go missing.

Licensing your dog: it’s part of being a responsible pet owner. Do it for them, do it for every dog in PA.

Having a dog license is the best way to bring them home if they get lost. And the cost of your dog license allows the Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement to crack down on illegal kennels, investigate dog bites, and ensure dangerous dogs are not roaming the streets.
