Belmont County Auditor - Cindi Henry

Andrew L. Sutak, Belmont County Auditor is pleased to announce that beginning on December 1, 2009 a 2010 dog license can now be applied for and paid by credit card online through a secure web site. You may also go to the Belmont County Auditor website and click on Dog License Online to access the site. Several other counties have used this system and it comes highly recommended. Our office will not handle any part of the online transaction. Once the transaction is completed the license information and a check will be forwarded to the auditor’s office on a weekly basis. Once the necessary information is received the dog tag/s and receipt will be sent to the purchaser. This feature is being added as a convenience to dog owners. There will be an additional fee to use the online service.

The 2010 dog and kennel license will go on sale December 1. An application will be mailed to each person who applied for a license during 2009. Anyone who acquired a dog/s or a kennel (five dogs or more) during the year and did not receive an application form from the auditor’s office, may apply for a license from any agent located throughout the County, at the Court House or use the online service.

After receipt of the preprinted application, please review the information on the form, make any necessary corrections, enclose a check for the fees, and return the application in the enclosed envelope and mail to: Belmont County Auditor, Attn: Dog License, 101 W Main St., St. Clairsville, OH 43950. After processing the application, the auditor’s office will mail the license/s and a copy of the application to the owner.

The license fee is $12 for each dog or $60 for a kennel license. For questions, please contact the auditor’s office at 740 699-2131.
