State will enforce Montgomery County dog licenses next month

    Get your dogs up to date, because the state is coming. Pennsylvania’s Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement will be in Montgomery County next month to make sure your dogs are licensed.

    Officials will be in town May 9 to May 11 to canvass for unlicensed dogs, the Mercury reports. So if you’re pup is 3 months or older and you haven’t gotten or renewed your license since Jan. 1, it’s time to pay up.

    Neutered dogs cost $6.45; others are $8.45 for the year, and they’ve got to be vaccinated for rabbies. Fines are $300. You can get more information on the state’s dog license website.
