2020 Erie County Dog License Reminder-  December 1st through January 31st

All dog owners are reminded that they must purchase 2020 licenses for their dogs starting December 1st through January 31st.  The County Dog Warden says that officers will be going door-to-door to verify that all dogs are licensed.  Those in violation will be issued citations.

State law requires that all dogs must be licensed by the time they become three months of age.  All unlicensed dogs can be seized and impounded as allowed under the law.  Offenders can be fined up to $250 plus court costs.

There is a $20 penalty for late purchases in addition to the standard $20 per license and a $100 penalty for a late kennel license in addition to the standard $100 fee.

State law also requires that the license must be displayed on the dog.  Dog owners should keep in mind that a current dog license displayed on your dog is the best form of identification.  If the tag is lost a duplicate can be made for $5.00 at the Dog Pound.

Huron County Dog License Reminder-   2020 Dog and Kennel Tags Sale Begins December 1, 2019

All dogs (3) Three Months and Older are required to be licensed      Buy Online Here

Application MUST be filed by January 31, 2020 to avoid penalty

You have the option of license purchasing    1 year ($18)       3 year ($54)    or    permanent ($180)
Longer term licenses are not transferable to a new owner and non-refundable in the event of death of the dog.

  • Help the  dogs at the Huron County Dog Pound.  Pay $23 per tag and receive a special shaped tag for the 2020 year.   The additional $5 received per tag will go towards the medical treatment of the dogs at the Huron County Dog Pound.

Kennel License Fee is $90 for 1 year,   3 year and permanent can only be purchased at the Huron County Auditors office.

REMINDER:   A dog tag MUST be worn on your dog’s collar, and you MUST purchase tags in the county your dog resides in to be valid.
