Our mission: a safe and happy home for every pet

Pet licensing is the easiest way to protect not just your pet, but local animals in need. Yet, no one seems to know anything about it. Why do we license? Where does the money go? How do we do it?

DocuPet is here to provide transparency and value around the ultimate conduit for animal welfare. We've made pet licensing easy and valuable for everyone. Our reason why is simple: because our pets, communities and shelters deserve it.

Why we're here

We understand just how much pets bring to our lives. That's why we aim to equip pet owners with the tools they need to keep their pets safe and happy through pet licensing.

Pet licensing. *cue yawn* Hey, we get it, it doesn't sound like the most exciting idea in the world, but stay with us here... pet licenses are vital in not just keeping your own pet safe, they are the ultimate conduit for animal welfare.

In our dream world every pet holds a valid license. This would mean more funds going towards local shelters and more resources allocated to their animals that truly need the care. It would mean lost pets returning home faster thanks to a community-wide network working together to unite families with furry friends.

In fact, shelters rely on funds provided by pet licenses to support their work. The problem? Not that many pets are licensed. That's where we come in.

We know licenses are really important and we've done the dirty work to create the perfect solution for the pet licensing problem. We help hundreds of communities across North America drive forward these crucial programs aimed to protect loved pets and shelter animals alike. Whether or not you live in a community where we are the official pet licensing partner, we hope you now understand the importance of pet licensing, and get your pets tagged up.

Paying a "fee" to place a license tag on a pet's neck isn't a tax, it's a life source for local shelters

DocuPet was created not just to improve the pet licensing experience, but to redefine the process entirely. We've made licensing easy and valuable for everyone. Our reason why is simple: because our pets, communities and shelters deserve it.

We collect license revenue for 100% allocation to your community

Let us repeat that, DocuPet never takes a cut from licensing revenue, we simply provide administrators with an easy way to collect license fees which always go right back to the City of Syracuse. These fees help to support crucial local animal welfare initiatives that are keeping local animals in need, as well as your own pet, safe.

We’re freeing up time, money, and resources for administrators

DocuPet takes on the burden administrators face not only to free up resources, but to bring in more revenue for the communities they serve. An efficiently run program amounts to more time, energy and money available for the other critically demanding animal welfare-related tasks at hand. Our one-of-a-kind software solution helps them do this.

We put in the work and expertise to overcome the pet licensing issue because the more communities we serve, the more pets we can save. Together.

DocuPet is an awesome service! It makes licensing your dog so much easier than having to contact the city every year. We love that there are so many designer tag options instead of having to wear the plain city tag that is offered with the license!

We love this! Knowing there is a database that can log all of the important information about our pet and that alerts will be sent out if they become lost eases our mind.

Great company and service. You get a lot of benefits from your pet license that did not exist before plus it helps fund the shelters. Keep up the good work DocuPet.
