Dog licenses are ready for 2017

Dog lisenses are ready

Dog owners in Clermont County need to buy their 2017 dog licenses in December or January.

More than 18,000 dogs were licensed in 2016, and the Clermont County Auditor's Office estimates that the total number of dogs in the county is significantly higher.

A tag costs $16 and is the easiest way to ensure that you are reunited with your pet if it strays. The 2017 tags are on sale at various locations in the county during December and January. The Clermont County Auditor’s website,www.clermontauditor.org, lists the locations where tags are sold.
