Licensing dogs in South Stormont is now faster, easier, and more valuable for everyone. The Township of South Stormont has officially launched their partnership with DocuPet, a world-leading pet profile, lost pet, and licensing platform. Owners now get free access to DocuPet’s HomeSafe™ Lost Pet Service, and a secure online profile linked to their pet when they license.

DocuPet’s simplified, online experience is especially welcomed as the Township continues to navigate a pandemic. In addition to a contactless licence application and delivery, DocuPet also offers the 24/7 HomeSafe™ lost pet service included with each licence and over 200 colorful designer tags to choose from. Furthermore, funds from each designer tag are donated to OSPCA Stormont, Dundas and Glegnarry, providing much needed resources for medical treatment of sick or injured animals in the community.

The Township of South Stormont has worked together with DocuPet to update the licensing window from a calendar year approach, to the new 365 day model. Previously, all dogs were required to obtain their licence by January 1st of each year. Moving forward, licences will be valid for a full 365 days beginning on the date of purchase. Due to the recent change, a grace period has been implemented to extend current licences from the 12/31/2020 expiration date to 5/15/2021.

“Dog licences are important because they not only protect our own dogs, but help local pets in need.  We’re excited to work with DocuPet in order to make this process clear and simple” said Gilles Crepeau, Director of By-law Enforcement/Fire Chief.
