There are two important reasons to license your dog in The City of Syracuse.

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

2. License fees support important animal welfare initiatives.

The DocuPet Story

Pet licenses are really important. When lost pets end up in shelters, those with license tags are much more likely to be returned home. Also, license fees help support critical community initiatives. When we learned that across the United States a mere 13% of pet owners license their animals, we found our mission.

We've partnered with the The City of Syracuse to make every pet license as valuable to you as it is to animal safety.

Tags That Help All Pets

Our tags help lost pets get home safely. They also help fund local initiatives that find safe and happy homes for Syracuse's most vulnerable animals.

Now in The City of Syracuse, you can choose from our selection of fun tag designs. We can also etch your pet's name and your phone number on each.

Any tag choose will be your official license tag. Cool, huh?

HomeSafe Logo

Every DocuPet tag comes with a unique code tied to our free HomeSafe™ Lost Pet Service. If your pet 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.

Safe and Happy Fund

Our mission is to help provide a safe and happy home for every pet. Our commitment to this mission extends beyond improvements to pet license tags and registration programs. We also directly support local animal welfare charities by donating 20% of all product purchases including custom tags, and by collecting donations from pet owners.

The net proceeds of all funds collected in Syracuse through our Safe and Happy Fund go to support local animal welfare initiatives.
