Deadline to Buy 2021 Dog Licenses is June 30
A reminder to all dog owners that the deadline to purchase their 2021 dog license tag is Wednesday, June 30.
A one-year license purchased on or before June 30 is $25 for each dog. Licenses purchased after June 30 are subject to a $25 late fee. Dog owners also may purchase a three-year tag for $75 or a lifetime tag for $250.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the deadline to buy licenses was extended from January 31st to June 30th. Ohio law requires all owners of dogs 3 months and older to register their dogs in the county in which the dog is kept. Among other benefits, the annual tags help ensure lost dogs can be reunited with their owners quickly.
Dog owners can purchase their tags in person at the Lucas County Auditor’s Office, at the Canine Care Center, or online using the dog tag renewal system. Payments may be made by cash or check in person, or by credit card online.
