Dog Licenses & Wardens

Licensing your dog is required by law, in the State of Ohio. The license tag has an identification number that identifies you as the owner should the dog become lost or separated from you. If your dog is lost and brought to Animal Friends, it will be kept for 14 days, as long as it is wearing a current license, before it is evaluated for adoption/transfer. Without a license, the holding time is only 3 days. You can purchase your dog license from the Butler County Auditor, the Butler County Dog Wardens, Animal Friends Humane Society, or at one of the licensed vendors which are listed on the Auditor’s website. The Butler County Dog Wardens will also respond to your residence, during normal working hours, to sell you your annual dog license(s).To register your dog with the Butler County Registration System, or renew your dog’s tags, please follow the link below.
