According to the Ohio Revised code, the money goes to the dog/kennel fund. Out of this fund administration costs, and license tags are paid, reimbursement to farmers can be made for loss cause by dogs, the animal control officer and his expenses are paid, as well as board for stray animals. After a sufficient amount is set aside against losses of livestock for the next year, a donation can be made out of the fund to a society for the protection from cruelty of animals and children. I am paraphrasing of course.
If they hike it more than $2.00 in any year or number of years (not sure) they will have to send a certain amount out of every fee collected to the Veterinary research hospital to prevent canine diseases in Columbus.
If you want to know where the money goes, check out your state's revised code. It is public information.
