All dogs must be licensed: Friday deadline

Tom Jackson • Jan 30, 2014 at 12:45 PM

Any dog owners in Erie County must purchase a license for their pooch, even after the state-imposed Friday deadline passes. The county dog warden said officers will be going door-to-door to verify all dogs are licensed.

 

Those in violation will be issued citations, with a maximum fine of $250 plus court costs. State law requires all dogs to be licensed every year. Dog licenses are $18 apiece, and kennel licenses are $90.

 

Anyone buying either of those after Friday’s deadline could pay double — $36 for dog licenses and $180 for kennel licenses, when accounting for late fees. State law also requires the license be displayed on the dog. Dog owners should keep in mind a current dog license displayed on the animal is the best form of identification. If the tag is lost, a duplicate can be made for $5 at the dog pound. Dog licenses can be purchased at the following locations:
