If your animal is missing, the dog warden can quickly notify you that your pet has been found.
Unless a dog is confined in a registered kennel, he must wear his license (tag) at all times. If he is not wearing his tag he is subject to impounding, sale or destruction (Ohio Revised Code 955.10)
Section 955.12 of the Ohio Revised Code allows the county to hold a licensed dog for up to 14 days after mailing a notice of its capture to the owner, before allowing it to be either sold or destroyed. If a dog is unlicensed, the law allows it be either destroyed or sold after being held for only three days.
