Pet Calendar

Updated: January 26, 2023

Lucas County Dog Licenses Available

The Lucas County Auditor’s 2023 dog license renewal period will continue through the month of January.

One-year, three-year and permanent dog licenses can be purchased without penalty for $25.00 for one year, $75.00 for three years and $250 for the life-of-a-dog option.

Dog owners who purchase their 2023 license for their pet will receive the LC4 Love Dogs key fob, which is a rewards card program that offers discounts for services and goods at participating businesses and organizations.

In addition to all Toledo Lucas County Public Library branches, dog owners can purchase licenses in person at the Lucas County Auditor’s Office in One Government Center, Suite 600, or online using the dog tag renewal system. Payments may be made by cash, check or credit card.

Ohio law requires all owners of dogs ages 3 months and older to register their dogs in the county in which the dog is kept. Licenses purchased after January 31, 2023 will include a late fee equal to the cost of the annual license.
