From the Fairfield County Auditor’s Office
The Fairfield County Auditor’s Office will be accepting dog tag licensing applications and renewals December 1, 2022 through January 31, 2023. The office will be hosting a virtual dog show on its website during this time.
The Ohio Revised Code requires all dogs over the age of three months to have a dog tag. Dog tags also serve an important role in helping return lost dogs to their homes and rightful owners. Tags can be purchased for one year, three years, or the lifetime of the dog by visiting the Auditor’s Office or online through our website at https://www.doglicenses.us/OH/Fairfield/.
There are also several satellite locations, listed on the following page, that see one year licenses. Additionally, the Auditor’s Office is pleased to announce a virtual dog show! Fairfield County residents are invited to submit a photo of their dog along with the pup’s name, age, and city of residence. The photos will then be displayed on the Auditor’s website at https://www.co.fairfield.oh.us/auditor/.
The virtual dog show will run from December 1, 2022 through January 31, 2023. Submissions will be accepted at any time from now until January 31st. Submissions for the virtual dog show can be emailed to email@example.com. Submissions can also be mailed to or dropped off to the Fairfield County Auditor’s Office, 210 East Main Street, 2nd Floor, Room 206 Lancaster, Ohio 43130.
Dr. Carri Brown, County Auditor, stated, “Licensed dogs are more likely than unlicensed dogs to go home again if they are lost, and we are really encouraging people to get their licenses. We offer several convenient options, including the online option. In addition, it is going to be fun for everyone to participate in the virtual dog show. There are so many adorable, loveable dogs who are treasured in our county.”
