Dog Owners Offer Amnesty to Marion County Moneygrubbers

"Licenses are also required within 30 days of becoming a dog owner or of moving into Marion County."

Unless Marion County can PROVE you have been a dog owner for longer than 30 days, (or you admit to it), they cannot force you to pay late fees. Their offer of amnesty is because they have no reasonable means of enforcing their threats. Ignore them.
