By law (ORC 955.01), all dogs in the State of Ohio three months and older must be licensed by January 31st of each year, or within 30 days of bringing a new dog into your family. The standard licensing period runs December 1st through January 31. After that date, the price of a license doubles.
Your purchase of a dog license provides funding and support for Clermont Animal CARE’s activities to support the return and re-homing of lost and homeless animals in Clermont County. A dog license also increases the chances your lost pet makes his or her way back home.
