Nathan’s feels naked without dog tags


“A little privacy please! I’m getting dressed,” Nathan says before his collar is strapped on.

When Nathan gets dressed in the morning, he often reflects on the red tag dangling from his collar. Not only does it add a cheery jingle to the spring in his step, it also gives him the secure feeling that he can always find his way home.

Dog owners are supposed to buy new licenses by Jan.  1 annually, but they are sold all year.

Licenses range from $4.45 to $8.45. The red tags are engraved with the name of the dog’s home county and a code number.

The Pike County Treasurer’s office maintains a database of licenses that are  issued, which enables lost dogs to be returned to their owners more readily using the code number on the tag.

Licensing is mandated by state law and is enforced by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Fines for failing to secure a license range from $25 to $400.

Forms for the dog license can be found online. The license may be purchased online or in person at the county treasurer’s office, 506 Broad Street, Milford.
