scam alertDog Law Enforcement Office Warns Pennsylvania Dog Owners of Fraudulent Dog License Website

 Exercise Caution Online, Contact Your County Treasurer’s Office when in Doubt


Here are some tips to help customers ensure that they are on an official website:

  • Rather than using a search engine to reach a website to purchase a dog license, type directly into your browser’s address bar;
  • When in doubt, call your county treasurer’s office. Each county treasurer has a different process; while most offer an online option for purchase of licenses, some do not and require a paper form to be dropped off or mailed.
