Statutory deadline to purchase 2015 dog license January 31

E-mail Print
Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE reminds dog owners that the statutory deadline to purchase a 2015 dog license is Saturday, January 31, 2015. Since the deadline falls on a weekend, dog owners may purchase a license without penalty through Monday, February 2, 2015. Citizens who fail to renew their dog license by the deadline will be required to pay an $18 late fee.

2015 Summit County Dog Licenses cost $18 each. This year, the State of Ohio is requiring counties to offer two new licensing options. The County of Summit will be offering a three-year license for $54.00 and a permanent license for $180.00, in addition to the one-year license. Dog owners may purchase licenses at the following county government office buildings:

  • County of Summit Division of Animal Control, 250 Opportunity Parkway, Akron, Ohio
  • County of Summit Services Department, 1030 E. Tallmadge Avenue, Akron, Ohio

Kennel owners must also renew their licenses during the same time period; the cost is $80 per license. Licenses for dogs providing assistance to citizens with disabilities are free of charge and valid throughout the duration of the animal's life.

The Ohio Revised Code requires citizens who own, keep or harbor a dog more than three months of age to purchase a county dog license. Dog licenses can be purchased online and at participating retail venues. For more information, visit Fiscal Office Dog Licensing or call 330-630-7226.
