A license is a lost dog's ticket home!
Having a license tag attached to your dog's collar may help your dog find its way home in the event he becomes lost. With our online search to locate a lost dog by the tag number, someone finding your dog may be able to contact you and help restore your beloved pet to safety. Also, our office may be contacted between the hours of 8:00 am - 4:30 pm, Monday - Friday to help find the owner of a lost dog. The license number is all the Dog Warden needs to identify a dog's owner. However, please remember if the license tag is not attached to your dog's collar it will not help in the event your dog is lost. The law requires each dog to be wearing his/her tag. A dog can be Seized and Impounded by the Dog Warden if he/she is over three months old and found not wearing his/her license tag, per Ohio Revised Code 955.12.
