MERCER COUNTY DOG REGISTRATION AND

CONTROL SERVICE FEES

County dog and kennel licenses are available December 1 prior to the new calendar year. The deadline to file an application for registration is January 31 of the licensed year. There is a late penalty fee equal to the registration fee.

STATE LAW REQUIRES THAT ALL DOGS MUST BE LICENSED BY THE TIME THEY BECOME THREE MONTHS OF AGE.
