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.

License is $20 for altered and $24 for unaltered. Oddly enough they do not require proof of rabies vaccination, which I think is incredibly short sighted.

Out here the annual dog license fee was €12.50 up until this January, when the price shot up to €20. Since we got Juno near the end of last year, we bought our license for her the day before the price went up.

I find the license a bit annoying and pointless since she's already chipped and has a tag. (How many different ways do you need to identify who owns a dog??)
I haven't got a clue what money for the license goes to. And since the drastic hike in price this year, my bet is that it's just another way to extract money from the general public.

Same here.

It is law over here to register dogs and cats and the fine if you don't is hefty!!! Entire dogs are over $100 and desexed dogs are $15 so there is a pretty big incentive to desex your animals.
Also the state of Victoria has just passed new laws that ALL dogs and cats advertised for sale MUST be microchipped and the number provided in the ad or the newspaper etc are not allowed to include the ad and you must provide the number at registration or the animal cannot be registered until it has been microchipped.

The cities in my county all require dog licenses, (although as far as I know, nobody ever checks), but I'm in an unincorporated part of the county I live in, so none of the city laws apply. I tried to research online once what the laws were regarding licenses and I wasn't able to find out what they are or where to go to get one, so I never pursued it.

Where I am there is a hefty fine - $100/dog - that is unlicensed, neutered or not.

To license an intact dog is $60/year, to license an altered dog not microchipped is $35/life and to license an altered dog with a microchip is free for life.

With that said, no one checks up on you. They only find out if you have a complaint and they come to your house, or if your dogs get picked up.

All of the dogs who come out of our local HS have been altered (or come with a certificate for a free spay/neuter) and they have all been microchipped, so I think they do it this way to make it easy on people who choose to adopt.

I honestly have no clue whatsoever if I'm supposed to have him licensed. He has his rabies shot tag, I don't know if I paid for that then or not? His vet is in another county though so I wouldn't think so.

Nobody has ever come this far out in the sticks that either I or my parents can remember to check so I suspect as long as you aren't in a town where local ordinance requires it you don't need to have your dog licensed.

Yup. It went up a couple of years ago. $12 for S/N and $24 for intact. At least now we can buy a three year license and can do it on line.
