Annual Auditor’s Office Dog License Coloring Contest Released

Jefferson- Ashtabula County Auditor David Thomas is holding his annual coloring contest for area children and residents with developmental disabilities in an effort to promote dog licenses this Winter season. Participants can get their coloring sheet by visiting the Auditor’s website or contacting their office.

“We’re happy to offer this exciting contest again this year for kids to enjoy,” shared Auditor Thomas.

Thomas’ goal with the coloring contests, top dog essay, and other outreaches for dog licenses has been to promote and educate on the need for licensing dogs in Ashtabula County.

“Dog licenses help protect pups and provides resources for vital services in our community. We've enjoyed involving kids in helping to educate the public on licenses,” explained Auditor Thomas.

The contest is open until December 16th by returning the finished work of art to the Auditor’s Office. These colorings will be on display in the Courthouse through the rest of Dog License season ending January 31st as a reminder of the importance to get pets licensed. Winners will receive a free 2023 Dog License and coloring kits.

The regular Dog License season runs December 1st through January 31st. After this period, those who are new dog owners can still purchase a license for $12. Pet owners who are renewing late must pay a late fee of $12 plus the license cost.

"We had a great regular season for dog license sales with 9,859 sold to date for 2022," explained Auditor Thomas. "One of the things we have done is push three year and lifetime tags which cuts down on time for the resident and costs for taxpayers."

Residents can still purchase their licenses in a variety of ways through the Auditor's Office starting December 1st. Auditor Thomas has helped to secure additional local registrars with nine now for the public to use in addition to purchasing a license in person, online, or by the mail through the Auditor’s Office.

Those with questions, are encouraged to call 440-576-2783 or visit the Auditor’s website. All dogs three-months-old or older must register or renew their license each year between December 1 and January 31. Licenses alert the Dog Warden of official ownership and the owner’s contact information if a dog becomes lost or a concern arises. These fees help with shelter costs and Dog Warden funds.
