WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Trumbull County commissioners are expected to bring back a popular program called “dog license forgiveness days.”
If approved, dog owners who missed the deadline to buy or renew the dog license will have the $18 penalty fee per license waived. This would be the third year for the program.
Chief Executive Dog Warden Gwen Logan says renewal notices will be sent out within the next week and that the forgiveness days have been successful in the past. The dog warden says at least a thousand people take advantage of it.
“Sometimes in the winter, you get busy or you’re out of town and you – it just gets past you. That letter gets stuck aside and you don’t get it mailed in, and so we like to provide this opportunity for people to still comply with the law and having a license for every dog in the county,” Logan said.
Dog license forgiveness days would run from June 8 through June 13.
Dog owners can buy the license at the County Auditor’s Office Monday through Friday or at the County Dog Kennel on Anderson Avenue Monday through Saturday.
