Is your dog licensed?

We all love our dogs and want them returned home safely if they get lost. One of the best ways to ensure that happens is to comply with state law and license your dog.

With that in mind, I’m teaming with Montgomery County Treasurer Jason Salus to make it more convenient for you to get your dog licensed.  All you have to do is stop by my office at 2000 Bustard Road, at the corner of Bustard and Skippack Pike in Worcester, on Tuesday, Aug. 15, between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

The Treasurer’s Office will have dog license applications for both annual and lifetime licenses on hand. You simply fill out the paperwork and pay the fee, and your paper license and metal dog tags will be mailed to your home within the week.  There is no need to bring your dog with you.

Note that lifetime licenses require an extra step: proof that your dog is tattooed or microchipped. We will have all the forms, and licensing officials will be on hand to explain that process.
