Delaware state law requires that all dogs six months or older must have rabies shots and be licensed on or before March 1st each year. Fees vary depending upon the duration of the license and whether or not the animal is neutered. Licenses are available at the county offices, pet protective associations, hardware stores, pet shops, and many veterinarian offices. No license is required for cats, although rabies vaccinations are mandatory for all cats six months or older.

Cities, boroughs, and other municipalities maintain animal control regulations in Pennsylvania. In general, dogs must be licensed and vaccinated against rabies. Licenses are valid for one year and the fee is usually slightly lower for spayed or neutered animals. For more information or answers to specific questions about the fees, cut-off dates, and regulations in your municipality, contact your local animal control officer.
