Dog Tags Cannot Be Purchased At Auditor’s Office

The Hancock County Auditor’s Office says dog tags will not be sold in person at their office due to the pandemic.

Dog tags went on sale on Tuesday. The registration process runs from December 1st through January 31st.

The Hancock County Auditor’s Office is requiring that registrations be mailed, placed in the drop box at the courthouse or updated on the auditor’s website to purchase a tag online.

Some satellite locations are still available for onsite purchases such as Blanchard Valley Vet Clinic and Pet Supplies Plus.

A 2021 dog license costs $20.

Hancock County Auditor Charity Rauschenberg wants dog owners to know about their online “Lost Dog Search” to help reunite lost dogs with their owners. A link to the search is available by clicking here.
