A dog license, worn on a dog’s collar could be your beloved pet’s ticket home if they get lost or loose. Lost dogs wearing a valid Hamilton County tag can be easily traced to the owner when the finder calls (513) 946-DOGS, the 24-hour hotline for returning lost dogs. Each dog license has a unique number and if a deputy warden or other person finds a lost dog with a license, a simple phone call or search online will provide the dog owner’s name, address and telephone number.

Every dog over the age of three months must have a license by January 31 of every year according to Ohio law. Dog owners who fail to purchase a license for their dog by January 31, 2012 are subject to a fine.

In additional, SPCA Cincinnati will offer a free rabies shot for your dog with a purchase of a dog license.

Discounted microchip implantations will also be available. Microchipping and registration for one cat or dog is $10, a savings of more than $65.

Rabies shots are also free for cats, but SPCA Cincinnati is asking for a small donation of your choice (since cats do not require a license).
