ME & MY PAL DRAWING CONTEST

The "Me and My Pal" drawing contest was created by the Franklin County Auditor's Office to help promote responsible pet care and ownership. One of the responsibilities of the auditor's office is to license all dogs in the county.

Licensing your dog is required by the State of Ohio. The license is an assigned I.D. number that identifies you as the owner should the dog get lost or separated from you.

The 2019 contest has ended.  Check back next October for the new submission information!
