Should the county emergency management agency office duties be a separate office?
Every dog in Paulding County must be registered before Jan. 31

If your dog lives in Paulding County, it MUST be registered in Paulding County. It doesn’t matter if you live in the country or if your dog doesn’t go outside – it still has to be registered in the county in which it lives to be in compliance with state law.

As of Jan. 20, 2012, less than 1,700 dogs have actually been registered. With the new computer system, it is easy to track who has failed to renew their dog registration forms. There are at least 4,000 unregistered dogs and 25 unregistered kennels in Paulding County, according to dog warden Georgia Dyson.

Puppies over three months of age must be registered as well.

With the new technology, if dog warden staff members are out driving around and see a dog or dogs at a residence, they can check the address to see if the dogs have been registered. If the dog has not been registered, they add the address in the computer to be checked for compliance at a later time.

When they begin checking dog tags in February, they will print out a list of unrenewed or unregistered dogs as well as those addresses that have been found to have dogs and were not currently in the system. Citations will be issued for those who have not registered their dogs.

Residents can register their dog at the Paulding County Auditor’s Office, Paulding County Dog Shelter or online at www.doglicenses.us/OH/Paulding/

Registrations can also purchased by mail. Send end a self-addressed STAMPED envelope to Paulding County Auditor, 115 N. Williams St., Paulding OH 45879. You can print the form at www.pauldingcountyauditor.com or find it in the Jan. 25 edition of the Paulding County Progress.
