Pennsylvanians urged to license their dogs
SELINSGROVE — Why not celebrate “Dog License Awareness Month” by licensing your dog? Not only is it the law, and not only will it help you to find your dog should it ever run away, but now it will help a local non-profit group as well.
Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary George Greig, state dog wardens and PetSmart have teamed up to challenge Pennsylvanians to license 100,000 dogs this month. If the goal is met, PetSmart promises to donate $10,000 to Susquehanna Service Dogs, a non-profit group that trains and provides service and hearing dogs to help people with special needs.
The cost of training and placing just one service dog is approximately $20,000. The price of licensing your dog this month is just $8.45. The fine for not licensing your dog would be $300.
Greig said, “Buy a license for your dog in March. You’ll not only help your best friend, you’ll support an organization that helps Pennsylvanians lead independent lives.”
