DocuPet - Online Dog Licensing System

The City of Thorold is excited to announce a partnership with DocuPet, an online dog licensing system.

What are the new advantages and benefits to you, the dog owners, who license their dogs?

  • In Thorold a by-law requires all dogs to be licensed and requires each dog to wear a tag.  DocuPet offers a unique tag and gives you the option to choose from two tag sizes to ensure the proper fit for your dog.  Each tag connects to your online account through a unique ID code.  You're in control of what information can be seen when the tag ID is searched.  Manage all your details through your online account!  Check it out and get licensed at
  • Receive rewards for licensing!  When you license your dog(s) you will receive an annual rewards card.  A variety of local businesses have offered deals to DocuPet rewards card-holders!  You can view these deals online at  Redeem your rewards by using your card as you check out at participating locations.
  • Create an online profile - The online profile allows your to store secondary contact information, additional pet information and photos of your dog.  You can also choose what information is visible to the public through your privacy settings, sign up for automatic renewals and browse lost dogs.
  • A lost dog wearing identification has a far greater chance of making it home safely and quickly.  Once licensed, you will have access to DocuPet's lost pet services.  This allows you to report your dog lost on your online account, sending a notification to your local shelter and pet owners on the "Lost Pet Brigade".  Anyone who finds your dog can use the ID code on his/her tag to look up information you've deemed to be accessible to the public.
