Dog Licenses

We highly recommend that new dog owners obtain an inexpensive license upon the adoption of a new dog. It is also PA State law that all dogs 3 months of age and older be licensed annually and sport the valid tag on their collar. Residents of Erie County and the City of Erie can purchase their dog licenses at the Humane Society during our regular hours of operation. Lifetime Licenses may only be purchased at the Erie County Courthouse.
