Dog Licensing

All dogs three months of age or older must be licensed. Licenses are issued by the Chester County Treasurer. The County Treasurer’s website provides additional licensing information and downloadable forms.

It is unlawful for any person to permit any animal to run at large upon any public thoroughfare, any public ground, or on any private property other than that of the owner. Owners are responsible for immediately removing and properly disposing of all animal excreta from any public property or any private property other than that of the animal’s owner.
