On Friday, December 21, 2012, Montgomery County Commissioners Judy Dodge, Dan Foley and Debbie Lieberman our partners from the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and the SICSA Pet Adoption Center to kick off the “Iams Home 4 the Holidays” campaign. This global effort encourages people to adopt a pet from a local shelter this holiday season.
Right now, as many as 8 million animals are homeless in the United States. Last year, the “Iams Home 4 the Holidays” pet adoption drive found loving, adoptive homes for over 1.25 million orphaned pets. Montgomery County is proud to be a part of the effort each and every year.
The “Iams Home 4 the Holidays” Pet Adopt-A-Thon will take place on Saturday, December 22, 2012 at the Dayton Mall from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This is also a perfect time to buy your 2013 Montgomery County Dog License. Licenses are on sale now through January 31, 2013. Licenses are $20 for dogs that have been spayed or neutered and $24 for unaltered dogs. Keep in mind that there are exceptions made for dog breeders who have proper registration and hunters who have a valid hunting license and use their dog for hunting. In addition, dogs that are medically certified by their veterinarian as being too old or health compromised may receive the discounted rate by providing certification with their application to the Auditor's Office.
2013 dog licenses are on sale online at www.mcohio.org/dogs, at the Montgomery County Auditor’s Office, area shelters, outpost stations, and by mail. Call 937-225-4314 for more information.
