The Assessors Office is responsible for the sale of dog tags and kennel licenses. Each dog over the age of six months is required to have an up-to-date tag which costs $3.00 for county dogs and $6.00 for dogs in the town of Romney. Kennel licenses are available for people in the business of raising or boarding dogs. The fee for a kennel license is $10.00 and includes up to 5 tags. For each additional dog the regular fee applies. A kennel is a commercial business which requires a West Virginia State business license (WV Code 10-20-3)
