There are many compelling reasons to register your dog with the county through a dog license, here are a few:

1. It’s the law!
2. If your dog gets lost, a license on your dog’s collar is the fastest way to reunite you and your dog.
3. The fee you pay for your dog license and license renewal allows the Wood County Dog Shelter to operate and meet the needs of Wood County Citizens.
4. Your dog license shows that you are a responsible pet owner.
