The State Dog Wardens and the Columbia Borough Police will be conducting compliance checks during the Month of April. Officers will canvass homes to ensure that dogs have a current license and rabies vaccination.
The Police as well as the State Dept. of Agriculture remind dog owners that a license is one of the best ways to ensure a lost dog is returned home safely. Under PA law, all dogs three months or older must be licensed by January 1 of each year. Violators can be cited with a maximum fine of $300 per violation plus court costs.
Licenses may be purchased through Treasurer Ebersole at 150 N. Queen St, Ste 122, Lancaster or by calling 717-299-8222. For more information, visitwww.licenseyourdogPA.com or call 717-787-3062.
