Lifetime Dog Licenses
Lifetime dog licenses are available if you are going to have the dog tattooed or implanted with a microchip. These licenses may be purchased by mail or in person at the Lehigh County Government Center. A tattoo number is issued by the County fiscal Office at the time of application. Completion of a Permanent Identification Form is required by the veterinarian tattooing, implanting or scanning the microchip. This form must be returned to the County Treasurer within 30 days of a receipt. A dog is not legally licensed until a dog owner returns the completed certificate.
