Annual Licenses can be applied for in three ways; in person, by mail, or by applying online.

To apply in person, you can do so by coming to the office, or by going to one of the local agents throughout the County that also sells the licenses.  To view the listing of dog agents, click here.

To apply by mail, you will need to print the annual dog license application.  If you don’t have a computer access and/or a printer, call the office and we’ll be happy to mail one to you.  You can mail the application with a check or money order to the Treasurer’s Office. Checks can be made payable to “York County Treasurer”.
