2022 dog licenses on sale through Jan. 31
LISBON — Columbiana County residents are reminded that 2022 dog licenses are on sale through Jan. 31 without a penalty. In compliance with Ohio Revised Code 955.01, all dogs 3 months of age and older harbored in Columbiana County must be licensed.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents are recommended to purchase 2022 dog licenses online at https://www.doglicenses.us/OH/Columbiana (a convenience fee will be assessed for all electronic transactions); or by mail. The auditor’s office has a drop box in the hallway for convenience since only two individuals are allowed in the office at a time. To receive an application in the mail, call the auditor’s office. Licenses can also be purchased at Discount Drug Mart in Lisbon or Hanoverton Hardware in Hanoverton through Jan. 31.
The registration fee for the one-year license is $12, the three-year license is $36 and the permanent license is $120. Owners should be aware that the longer-term licenses can be bought online or by mail and are non-refundable in the event of the death of the animal. The cost of each one year license is $12.75 when purchased at a satellite provider.
Those who received a pre-printed application in the mail should mail the bottom of the application with payment or bring in person. Without a completed application, identification showing name and current address will be required in order to buy dog licenses.
Dog license applications and payments may also be mailed to the Columbiana County Auditor’s Office at 105 S. Market St., Lisbon, OH, 44432, with a postmark no later than Jan. 31, 2022. A penalty of $12 per license will be applied after Jan. 31. Those who no longer have a dog should mark it on their application and return it so that their account can be updated.
All kennel licenses will be processed by mail only through the auditor’s office. If no application was received, call 330-424-9515 ext. 1006 and one will be mailed.
