This week: Summit County license campaign underway
If you follow the Cleveland Pets Examiner, you have read about the importance of licensing your dog. Unfortunately, many dog owners are still choosing to ignore the law, putting their dogs at unnecessary risk. A dog license is your dog's ticket home if it gets lost. It not only protects your dog if he is picked up by animal control, but the license fee funds the County kennel and helps care for the dogs that are not as lucky.
Summit County has begun a license campaign to try to get dog owners to comply with Ohio law. Workers are going door-to-door in Stow, Macedonia, Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Green, and Springfield Township and hanging door flyers with information about registering.
An estimated 133,000 dogs live in Summit County, but this year, the County reports that only 38,000 licenses have been sold. Some dog owners think that a license is an unnecessary expense. Some think that their dogs will never get lost; but 1 in 3 dogs will go missing during their lifetime. Being licensed ensures that if they are picked up by animal control their owner can be found. When 3 to 4 million pets are killed in shelters across the U.S. every year, the cost of a license is a small price to pay to keep your pet from being one of them! Additionally, the funds collected for licensing are used to operate the County Kennel. Animals in underfunded kennels are euthanised in greater numbers, because there's not enough money to care for them.
All dogs are required to have a new license by January 31 every year, and can be fined double the cost of the license if it is purchased after the deadline. Summit County is waiving the fine for people who follow the instructions on the door flyers and license their pets now.
A dog license is an easy way to increase the chances of reclaiming a lost pet.
