The Clermont County Auditor’s Office has partnered with DocuPet to provide an enhanced dog licensing experience for residents. Your dogs license now includes DocuPet’s free HomeSafe™ 24/7 lost pet service and designer license tags with personalization options. Additionally, 20% of every designer tag purchase is donated to Clermont County Animal Shelter through DocuPet’s Safe&Happy Fund.
Dog licenses expire annually on December 31. Under Ohio law all dogs older than three months of age must be licensed (ORC 955.01). All dogs kept, sheltered or owned must display a valid registration tag. The law applies regardless of whether the dog is kept inside or out.
If a license is not purchased by February 1, 2023, the annual fee will double, unless you have acquired your dog and/or moved to Ohio within the last 30 days.
In addition to your pet’s official Clermont County dog license, here are some benefits of your DocuPet online profile:
