MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – Some of the furry members of our community are ready to go to work keeping residents of Montgomery County safe after they got their 2018 licenses Friday morning.

Montgomery County Auditor Karl Keith presented K-9s from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Dayton Police Department and Kettering Police Department the licenses for free to honor the services the dogs and their handlers provide.

Throughout the county, nearly 20 dogs help 10 police departments search buildings, perform demonstrations, investigate bomb threats, chase criminals and find illegal drugs.

“I wanted to honor the important work these K-9 units do to keep our communities safe,” Keith said.

Keith also took the chance to remind pet owners that licenses must be renewed annually, unless there’s a three-year or permanent license purchased. The fee is $20 for spayed or neutered dogs, and $24 for dogs that have not been altered.
