Dog licenses 2015 Sussex County DE

Sussex County 2015 dog licenses on sale

Georgetown, Del., Dec. 16, 2014: Sussex County is keeping a tight leash on animal control costs, with fees for annual dog licenses – now on sale for 2015 – remaining unchanged for the new year.

Sussex County dog owners have until March 1, 2015, to obtain up-to-date licenses for dogs 6 months or older. For spayed and neutered dogs, the annual cost is $10; for non-spayed and unneutered dogs, the cost is $15 yearly. Fees collected through dog licenses help to support animal control services provided by the County and mandated by Delaware law.

Dogs must be current on their rabies vaccinations at the time the license is obtained. Fees will be waived for seeing-eye, lead or guide dogs and those that have previously served in a branch of the U.S. military.

Licenses are available in one-, two- and three-year increments, and are valid through Dec. 31 of the expiration year. Owners who fail to comply with the County’s licensing requirements face an initial $50 fine, with a maximum fine of $100 for repeat offenses within a 12-month period.

 Applications can be made online or in person. Visit and click on the “Dog Licensing” link on the bottom left side of the main page, or stop by the County Administrative Offices building, 2 The Circle, in Georgetown, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For questions about dog control services and licensing requirements, call (302) 855-7380.

A Cat House For The Winter

This project has worked out well with little effort on my part.  I took a Styrofoam cooler taped the lid on and cut an entrance hole in for my outside cats.  They seem to like it. 
I noticed at apartment complexes the residents often receive meat or seafood in styrofoam coolers or shipping containers.  So I dug this out of a dumpster and washed it out, put a paver on top so it wouldn't blow away and the cat is set for the winter.

The Vapeit Shop

Looks like a new shop in the old Stainglass Bridal shop building on Bi-State blvd.
