After your registration and payment has been received and processed our records will be updated to reflect an active licence status and your tags will be shipped within one business day from being entered in our system.

It is important to note that mailed and in-person applications are not always entered into our system immediately and this will often delay the shipment of your pet's tag. If you would like to ensure your pet's licence application is processed right away please license online, or by phone.

You will be sent an email with a receipt and link to activate your online account where you can upload more information about your pet. If you do not have an email, your activation code will be mailed to you along with your pet's tag. Please note that you will need a valid email to setup your online DocuPet profile.
