The Auditor's office is the focal point in Lucas County for issuance of licenses for dogs, kennels, vendors and cigarettes. Dog licenses
comprise the largest number of licenses sold. The annual dog registration is a service designed to benefit the animal, its owner and the community. Please refer to our 2013 Area Vendors
for a list of agencies that sell dog licenses.
Vendor licenses authorize businesses to sell tangible property to the public and collect sales tax, a part of which is returned for use on the local level.
