Dogs Must Have License by January 31st


Dear Dog Owner,

It is up to you to keep your dog healthy, happy, and safe. Take your dog to a veterinarian.

Protect your pet from deadly contagious diseases by simple inoculations and regular checkups.

Consider spaying and neutering to prevent the tragedy of unwanted puppies and to protect your pet from health problems.

Give your dog regular exercise.  A daily brisk walk on a leash can prevent many behavioral problems like chewing, barking, and digging.

Help your dog burn up calories and energy in a healthy way.

Feed your dog a balanced diet of good food and fresh water. Your dog can’t just go fix a snack.  You are his chef and server.

License your dog.  Not only is it the law, but a Logan County license automatically registers your dog for a trip home if he gets lost.

Remember, call 937-599-7209 if you find a lost dog.


Jack Reser, Logan County Auditor
