New Ohio Pet License Plates Now Available
These plates raise funds for education, pet spaying and neutering (for low-income families), and for dogs and cats adopted from qualifying agencies. Even residents who have just renewed their plates can get them at any location that issues license plates, or by calling 1.800.589.TAGS.
