Once again it’s time to purchase dog licenses for 2017!

Residents of Montgomery County may buy licenses between now and January 31 at the Moraine Administration Building, 4200 Dryden Road. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A license for a spayed or neutered dog costs $20, an unaltered dog is $24. Dogs ages 3 to 9 months are $20 without regard to spaying/neutering. Ohio law requires all dogs over age 3 months to be licensed. The dog must reside in Montgomery County. Cash or checks are accepted. Make checks payable to Montgomery County Auditor. (Sorry, no credit cards.)

License fees support Montgomery County Animal Resource Center operations and licensing a dog is a valuable tool in getting your pet home should they get lost.

Dog licenses may also be purchased at Animal Resource Center (898-4457), 6790 Webster Street, in Dayton, or SICSA (294-6505), 2600 Wilmington Pike, in Kettering, or Humane Society of Greater Dayton (268-7387), 1661 Nicholas Road. Hours for these locations vary.
