Delaware County dog owners looking to purchase the yearly state dog tag can now do so online, the county announced.
Pennsylvania law mandates that all dogs older than three months have a state-issued tag. The regular yearly fee is $6.45 for a dog that has been spayed or neutered. The online service does not apply to lifetime licenses, which start at $31.45 and require a microchip or tattoo and verification from a veterinarian. There is a 5 percent fee to use the online service, to cover shipping and handling of the tag.
