FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CONTACT: ANITA LOPEZ, LUCAS COUNTY AUDITOR
Dog Licensing Deadline Extended, due to COVID-19, to July 1, 2021
Citizens can purchase tags through the extended deadline and pay no penalty.
Dog licensing renewal is extended to July 1, 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Auditor encourages all Lucas County Dog owners to renew their licenses as soon as possible. You must register your dog for their safety and our community if you did not register your dog last year. Registration early protects your dog earlier and supports the operations of the Lucas County Canine Care Shelter. After reviewing HB 404 and discussing with the Lucas County Prosecutor (legal advisor to the Auditor), both offices agree that HB 404 extends the deadline to register to July 1, 2021.
