The clock is winding down for you to purchase dog licenses for 2019.   The deadline is Thursday, January 31st.   After that date, the price of a dog tag jumps from $20 to $40 per dog.            So far in Defiance County over 3,500 dog licenses have been issued; far short of last years total of nearly 7,200 dog licenses.    Those dog tags can be purchased at the Defiance County Auditor’s Office.   But there are other locations like:  Ayersville Carryout, Jewel Grain in Ney, Hicksville Police Department, Ft. Defiance Humane Society, Defiance Area Animal Hospital, Defiance Veterinary Clinic, along with Family, Farm and Home.
