Lucas County Auditor Kicks Off the 2018-2019 Dog Licensing Season, December 1, 2018
Anita Lopez, Lucas County Auditor is happy to announce the start of the 2018-2019 Dog Licensing Season. The Auditor encourages all Lucas County Dog owners to renew their licenses as soon as possible at any of the county's, thirty-one (31) vendor locations. Last season, Toledo Lucas County Library and the Auditor formed a licensing partnership. The partnership has proven to be a real benefit to citizens enhancing convenience and reducing wait-times, but the Auditor feels it is important to note that she appreciates the support of all other vendors as well. The Auditor has designed new processing improvements that have moved more operations online and eliminated a great deal of paper handling. “We are pleased with these changes as they had increased efficiency and reduced overtime hours that were required to handle over 55,000 applications. Dog owners can purchase a license starting December 1, 2018, through January 31, 2019. Pricing options are as follows: Fee Details: Pay by cash or credit card at Lucas County Library locations; check and cash at the BMV License Bureau; the Lucas County Auditor accepts cash and checks in person and credit cards online; payments and additional fees vary at licensing locations and online. Dog License Prices: 1 Year - $25.00 3 Year - $75.00 (must be purchased at the Lucas County Auditor’s Office) Permanent - $250 (available only online, the Lucas County Auditor’s Office or Canine Care) Vicious Dog Licenses - $50 (available only at the Lucas County Auditor’s Office. Can be mailed if the dog owner is renewing) For fun, the Lucas County Auditor invites citizens to participate in a Twitter contest asking citizens to guess the top three dog names. Twitter users should post the dog names and then end the post with the hashtag, #LucasCountyTopDogs. The Winner(s) will receive a gift pack from participating vendors.
