Warren County residents who own dogs have until Jan. 31 to purchase a 2013 license without facing a penalty fee.
New or renewal licenses cost $15 each or $75 for a kennel license. Special bone tags are available for $20, with $5 of that benefiting the Warren County Humane Association.
Tags can be purchased online at www.co.warren.oh.us/auditor or at a number of businesses across the county. In Mason, tags can be purchased at the Mason Family Pet Hospital at 771 Reading Road or the Mason Animal Hospital at 770 Reading Road.
All dogs aged three months or older are required by law to have a tag.
Beginning Feb. 1, a $15 late fee will be assessed for any renewal registrations. Those who have lost their dog’s tags can get a new one from the auditor’s office only for $5 fee with proof of payment and registration.
A list of the locations throughout the county where dog tags can be purchased is available by going to www.co.warren.oh.us/auditor.
For more information, call the licensing department of the auditor’s office at 513-695-1240.
