The City of Guelph has partnered with DocuPet Inc. to offer an enhanced pet licensing experience.

Our website is designed to make licensing your pet quick and easy. In just five minutes your pet will be licensed, and within 24 hours, our team will have their tags in the mail. Valid licences also mean you get year-round access to our Lost Pet System and the DocuPet Rewards Program. One in three pets become lost at some point in their lives (yikes!). Our Lost Pet System is designed to get those pets home. In fact, we have helped hundreds of pets that have been reported lost return home, safe and sound through our Lost Pet System.
