Get Your Dog Licence Online!

A dog licence is your best insurance for the safe and quick return of your family member. It also makes your dog instantly identifiable to anyone who may come across your pet and helps avoid the daily boarding charge. Best of all, a lost licensed dog will likely be at the shelter for just hours, not days. Learn more.
