Lycoming County Treasurer Connie Rupert Cindy S. Newcomer, Treasurer

The Lycoming County Treasurer is an agent for the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement and oversees the issuing of all dog licenses in Lycoming County.

Pennsylvania currently offers two types of Dog Licenses; a yearly license or a lifetime license. A yearly license runs on the calendar year, valid from the date of purchase until December 31 of the year in which it was purchased. A lifetime license is a permanent license that does not need to be renewed each year.

Yearly dog licenses may be purchased in the Treasurer’s Office at 33 West Third Street in Williamsport, online, by mail or at the Lycoming County SPCA on Reach Road in Williamsport. If applying by mail, please mail application and payment along with proof of disability, if required, to:
