COLUMBUS, Ohio – A reminder for dog owners: Time is running out to buy Fido’s license.

State law requires dogs over three months old to have a license on its collar at all times and the deadline to buy the license is Jan. 31, according to a release from the Franklin County Commissioners. After that, late fees apply.

The commissioners say the license is also a valuable tool to make sure your dog is quickly returned if it ever gets lost. A spokesman for the commissioners’ office says over 90 percent of dogs found wearing a license make it back home to their owners.

Last year over 2,900 lost dogs were reunited with their owners by the County’s Department of Animal Care and Control.

Licenses are available online and at various locations:

The Dog Shelter and Adoption Center, 4340 Tamarack Boulevard
The Franklin County Auditor’s office in the county courthouse, 373 S. High Street, 21st Floor
The Capital Area Humane Society in Hilliard
Area Pet Supplies Plus locations.

All dogs must have a current rabies vaccination before a license can be purchased.

A one-year license is $18 for a spayed or neutered dog or $35 for an unaltered dog. A three-year license is $54 if altered or $105 unaltered. Permanent licenses are $180 and $350 unaltered.
