The cost of licensing dogs in Clark County increases from $16 to $20 with the issuance of tags for 2010, according to Clark County Auditor George Sodders. The increase was approved by county commissioners earlier this year.
The county auditor’s office began mailing applications to dog owners on November 30th. The deadline for registration and licensing is February 1, 2010. After that, the cost of a tag doubles to $40. New dog owners must license their pet within 30 days of becoming the owner.
