Lucas County Canine Care & Control handles stray and homeless dogs and enforces dog laws in Lucas County, which is in northwest Ohio, including the City of Toledo. We handle about 300 dogs monthly. We have a staff of 33 people made up of: 5 Canine Control Officers and their crew leader, 3 front desk clerks, 2 dispatchers, 9 Canine Care Technicians and their crew leader, the veterinarian, two Registered Veterinary Technicians, a Veterinary Assistant, the Community Outreach Coordinator, the Personalized Adoption Counselor, the Behavior & Enrichment Coordinator, the Community Engagement Manager, the Office Manager, the Canine Care Center Supervisor (Deputy Dog Warden), and the Director (Chief Dog Warden). Our department is funded primarily through the purchase of dog licenses. Your dog license purchase not only helps to protect your dog, but also helps us care for homeless and stray dogs, protect the community from loose and dangerous dogs, and help reunite lost dogs and their owners.

The Ohio Pet Fund supports spaying and neutering of owned and shelter animals with the proceeds from the sale of Ohio Pet License Plates. Please consider this option next time you renew your Ohio license plates! We received a $2500 grant from them previously to help with the cost of spaying and neutering all our adoptable dogs.
