There are two important reasons to license your dog in the Township of South Stormont.

1. Dog tags get stray animals home and reduce shelter stays.

2. Licence fees help fund important community initiatives.

Our Partnership with DocuPet

Dog licences are really important. Dogs with license tags are much more likely to be returned home by Animal Control Officers or good samaritans without ever seeing the inside of a shelter. When licensed dogs do make their way to a shelter, their tag helps get them home quickly. Fees from dog licensing also help support important initiatives that protect animals in our community.

We've partnered with DocuPet so that residents of South Stormont can take advantage of their free 24/7 Lost Pet Service and designer tag upgrades.

Your Registration Includes:

  • Designer Pet Tags with secure online profile
  • • The HomeSafe™ Lost Pet Service
  • • Access to great pet safety and wellness products
  • • Thanks for supporting animal welfare
  • • Your Township of South Stormont dog licence

Personalized Tags

Tags That Help All Pets

Our tags help lost pets get home safely. They also help fund local animal welfare initiatives.

Now you can choose from our selection of fun tag designs. We can also etch your dog's name and your phone number on any tag you choose.

Any tag you choose will serve as your official licence tag. Cool, huh?

HomeSafe Logo

Every DocuPet tag comes with a unique code tied to our free HomeSafe™ Lost Pet Service. If your dog becomes lost you can send Lost Pet Alerts to local pet owners who will use your code and our 24/7 Hotline to reunite you.
