Time to Purchase 2023 Dog Tags Without a Penalty Running Out

Written by on January 23, 2023

A reminder that you have a little over a week to purchase 2023 Dog Tags without a penalty.

The fee is $20, but if an application is not filed and the fee paid on or before January 31, then a penalty of $20 will be assessed.

After January 31, officers will be visiting door to door, and anyone found harboring an unlicensed dog will be cited into court, where they could be fined up to $150 for a first offense and up to $250 for each subsequent offense, plus court costs.

The dog tags can be purchased at several businesses around the county, the Hardin County Auditor’s Office and the Hardin County Dog Shelter.

You can also buy them online at: co.hardin.oh.us

Every dog three months of age and older must have a dog license.
