Dog tags for 2016 go on sale Dec. 1

Brown County Auditor Jill Hall reminds everyone dog tag season will begin soon. Tags go on sale Dec. 1 and owners have through Feb. 1, 2016 to purchase new dogs tags without a penalty. Dog owners have the option to purchase a one year tag, three year tag, or Lifetime tag. The Commissioners have made the decision to keep tags for 2016 at their present rate of one year- $12, three year- $36, and Lifetime- $120. Kennel tags will also stay the same at $80 per year for five tags, and $1 for each additional tag (owners are reminded every dog in the kennel must have a separate tag). Owners may only purchase kennel tags if breeding for sale or show, and must have a valid vendor license.

There are several ways to purchase dog tags. Mail the renewal form to the Auditor Office with a stamped, self-addressed envelope, and office personnel will mail the tags to you. Purchase tags online with a credit card; online sales are the only way to use a credit card per Ohio Law. Go to and click on dog tags, then the picture of the dog. Enter your ID number from the renewal form. The company charges a small service fee for online sales. Upon receiving your purchase, office personnel will mail tags to you. Kennel tags are available only at the Auditor’s Office and three year and Lifetime tags are available only online or at the Auditor office.
