How to License Your Pet
If you own a dog in the Town of Wasaga Beach, you must get a license for them each year. It is our responsibility to provide a safe community for our citizens and their pets. Licensing plays an important role in our ability to fulfill this responsibility. A license allows animal control to identify your pet, get in touch with you, and make decisions that are in the best interest of your pet should it become lost or injured.
(Cat licensing is optional)
The Wasaga Beach pet licensing program is managed by
DocuPet Inc. DocuPet provides a licensing solution that is simple and convenient, and includes added benefits for pet owners. You can license online in less than five minutes and will immediately gain access to your profile, which is used to reunite you with your pet in the event that they become lost. You will be in compliance as soon as you complete the form, and your pet tag will be sent in the mail within 10 to 12 business days.
