County treasurer implements new dog license system

From staff reports

The Clarion County Treasurer’s Office has implemented a new dog license system.

This new system should give the residents of Clarion County more user-friendly access for renewing their dog’s licenses online. Also, this system keeps dog owners in the system for multiple years.

Therefore, if a dog owner is in the system but forgets to get a license one year, all of the dog owner’s information is still in the system and can easily be looked up and updated by the treasurer’s office.

The new 2023 dog licenses will not be going on sale until Dec. 1 any regular dog license purchased between now and Nov. 30 will be a 2022 license and only valid until Dec. 31.

The pricing of dog licenses has not changed. If you choose to renew your dog’s license online, you may notice a fluctuation on the online fee. Some will be cheaper, yet some may be more depending on how many dogs you are renewing.

There are never any extra fees if you purchase your dog’s license in the treasurer’s office or if you mail in your application to the treasurer’s office with a check to: Clarion County Treasurer, 330 Main Street, Rm. 110, Clarion, Pa.16214.

Due to this being a new system and the fact that each person’s information will have to be re-entered into the computer as they renew for the 2023 license year, there will be no postcard reminders sent out in December this year.

The treasurer’s office will be putting out multiple press releases on the radio and in area newspapers to help remind everyone to renew their dog’s licenses for 2023.
