Delco to hold dog-license clinic

Posted: March 15, 2013

Delaware County is sponsoring a clinic to microchip and license dogs who live in the county, officials announced.

The event is being held on Saturday, April 6, at Rose Tree Park in Upper Providence and runs from 9 a.m. to noon. Free microchips will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis and will be implanted in the canines at the event. Dogs with the identifying chips are eligible for a life-time license, according to officials.

State law requires all dogs older than six months have a current license. Fees range from $6.45 for an annual license to $51.45 for a life-time license for an un-neutered dog. The program is sponsored by the county and the Delaware County Kennel Club.
