Wildlife Problems

Dog Licenses Required!

Dogs are required to be licensed in Sandyston Township at the age of 6 months and older.. The fee is $10 for spayed/neutered dogs and $13 for unaltered dogs.  To license your dog, please provide a rabies certificate with an expiration date of at least November 1 of the licensing year as well as proof of paying/neutering. Dog license forms are available here.

Don't Feed Stray Animals!

Sandyston Township would like to remind our residents and visitors to the township not to feed stray cats or wild animals. The feeding of stray cats and wild animals could cause a public nuisance and health problems for you and your neighbors. If you feed, maintain, or keep a cat, you are considered the owner, thus are responsible for such cat. With that in mind, be responsible and have your pet spayed and neutered. Cats alone can produce several litters in one year.
