Licensing Your Dog

All dogs three months of age and older must be licensed immediately according to state law. New dog licenses are sold during the annual renewal period between December 1 and January 31. Dogs acquired after January 31 must be licensed immediately to avoid penalty fees. Licensing is a requirement of Ohio law, and the current dog license attached to your dog's collar will identify you as the owner should the dog become lost. Anyone finding a dog with a license on it can call local law enforcement if our office is closed and get owner information. You will be notified if your dog is actually impounded by the Dog Warden's office and is wearing its current license. Dogs not wearing their current license are held only three days for reclamation. Under Ohio law, each stray must be held for 72 hours prior to adoption, while dogs wearing current licenses are held for 14 days. Every attempt is made to locate dog owners during holding periods, including the mailing of a certified letter to any owner of record of a dog wearing a valid Ohio license.

hi i dont know who to let know but I was on the freeway near Willoughby and seen looks like a German Shepard dog about where 90e and 271s split..
theres a little puppy or dog that looks like a corgi chihuahua mix white an tan spots with a pink collar at rec park between baseballfields next to river (painesville) running around and wont let me near her :( im gonna try and get a picture of her
Update on your KoKo I adopted in May. Her name is Elsie and she’s finally learned it! She mostly is patient waiting until mom finishes work at home. Then we like to lay together a while. Sometimes both of us nap. πŸ˜‰ she gets more visitors than I do because she is such a sweetie pie! Thank you lake county dog shelter!!
Female pitbull wandering at Beatty landing. Very friendly. No collar. Stuck around for 30 minutes . Wandered south down river.
Willowick Pet Food Pantry helpful information. Email the Pantry with questions you may have or see their FB Page.
it is really hard to see WHO needs adopted... would be nice if you highlighted them, i have been looking for a furbaby for over two years now to rescue
I am looking for a German shepherd or German shepherd mix! Do you have any in your facility?
You have all been super busy !!! Great Job !! Finding homes today !!!
Please raise the fines for people who can't seem to confine their pet to their own yard or house.
Lost friendly black lab near dog park in Eastlake. I live adjacent to Eastlake soccer fields. He had his bark collar on still. He isn't neutered or chipped. Just moved back from Louisiana. His name is Frankie. He wouldn't run off, he would return on his own, very likely he was picked up by someone concerned for him. So he likely isn't "missing" per'se. Please contact nick at (216) 282-7791
I was wondering since I have been looking to rescue,adopt, give a loving home to a dog now for over two years.. and visit the shelter, why there is no joint efforts with other nearby ohio counties to get these sweet dogs adopted. I keep looking and see how so many other counties are at full capacity, over crowded, and when I come to visit this shelter there are so few that you are permitted to even visit with. I have been denied to even share any human contact with several dogs, since I do own a cat, being told, no.. you can't visit with him or her.. they have to be an only pet in the house... looking into their eyes... a little human contact would go a long way.. just my opinion.
