If the front gate is closed during business hours, we are likely cleaning kennels and caring for the dogs. Please honk your horn so we know you are here and we will be happy to assist you.
Monday- Friday 2p-4P
If office hours do not work for you call for an appointment. We are in and out of the office throughout the day and we continue to check our voicemail for messages. Please call and leave a detailed message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.
If you wish to file a formal complaint about a dog, be prepared to give our office the most information that you can. Please keep in mind, all of our work here is public knowledge. We cannot keep your name anonymous unless you can demonstrate a clear threat to your safety.
We need your name and address and as much information about the dog owner as possible. The more information (name, address, type of offense) that you can give the better we can do our job. We do not handle barking dogs, cats, or wildlife.
We have to see a violation to issue a citation, UNLESS you wish to sign a sworn statement. Keep in mind false statements can be prosecuted as perjury.
Due to budget constraints regarding overtime and staff limitations the dog warden's office does not respond to after-hours complaints except in the case of emergency dog bites.
Dog Warden Duties
Chapter 955 of the Ohio Revised Code
The owning of dogs is regulated by Ohio Law for the protection of citizens, and well-being of the dogs.
The Dog Wardens Office is in charge of registering all dogs in the county and picking up stray dogs reported running loose. We are also legally responsible for investigating livestock kills by dogs, coyotes and black vultures.
All other services are courtesy of the Dog Warden's Office, and are placed in priority to our State Legal Obligations.
