Toledo, Ohio – November 21, 2017 - On November 29, 2017, Anita Lopez, Lucas County Auditor will hold a press conference to announce the upcoming dog-licensing season with a focus on encouraging owners of unlicensed dogs to purchase new, 2017-2018 licenses. To help with this effort, the Auditor’s Office; the Toledo Lucas County Public Library; Lucas County Canine Care; and non-profit, Friends of Lucas County Love Dogs have joined forces. Anita Lopez initiated and secured a partnership with the Toledo Lucas County Public Libraries to provide even more convenient, dog-licensing locations. The twenty, additional locations create a network of thirty-one dog-licensing locations and put more dog licensing vendors in areas densely populated with dog-owners. “We discovered that increasing community partnerships is a component of the Library’s strategic plan, so it made perfect sense for us to explore working together. Our new relationship improves our ability to service Lucas County, taxpayers and the relationship contributes to each of our organizational objectives,” said Anita Lopez. Neither of the partners believes that service will suffer because the number of vendor locations increases from 18 to 31. “As a community anchor with 20 locations countywide and outstanding customer service, we look forward to welcoming Lucas County dog lovers to the library to license their pooches,” said Jason Kucsma, Deputy Director at Toledo Lucas County Public Library. Although, there are over 38,000 dog-owners who purchased over 53,000 licenses, Richard Stewart, Director of Lucas County Canine Care believes that there could be thousands of dog-owners with unlicensed dogs. “We want to make it very clear that there are many benefits to licensing your dog,” says Mr. Stewart. “First, the law requires dog-owners to purchase a license. If your licensed dog gets lost and our Canine Control Specialists find it, the pet will receive a safe and free ride home. Also, most dog-parks require a license.” Each week between December 1 and January 31, Friends of Lucas County Dogs will randomly award a pair of Toledo Huntington Center event tickets to those that have purchased a new dog license.
