The following are some important questions and answers regarding the licensing of your dog:
Every person who owns a dog which becomes three months of age after January 31 st and before July 1st must file an application within 30 days of the January 31 st deadline and pay the full annual fee. If the dog becomes three months of age after July 1st, the fee is one-half the annual fee.
The cost to purchase a dog license in Vinton County is set by the Board of County Commissioners (O.R.C. 955.01).
