DocuPet helps keep pets and communities safe

Pet licences pro­vide an impor­tant peace of mind for ani­mal own­ers and an impor­tant iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tool for communities. 

A pet licence is a sim­ple way to give your­self and your pet the best chance of reunit­ing when some­thing goes wrong, help keep com­mu­ni­ties safer and save pets’ lives. One of the bet­ter ways to man­age pet licences is through DocuPet. 

Docu­Pet is an advanced pet licens­ing pro­gram, encour­ag­ing pet licens­ing com­pli­ance while reduc­ing munic­i­pal costs and pro­vid­ing new val­ue to pet owners.

The New Brunswick SPCA (NBSP­CA) is the offi­cial pet licens­ing part­ner of Docu­Pet for the province of New Brunswick. When your lost pet ends up in ani­mal shel­ters, those with Docu­Pet licence tags get home faster, open­ing up shel­ter space for ani­mals that tru­ly need it. Licence fees also help sup­port the crit­i­cal ani­mal pro­tec­tion ini­tia­tives of the NBSP­CA,” said Les­ley Rogers, exec­u­tive director.

Some Docu­pet fea­tures are:

  • Pet tag from Docu­Pet includes a unique code linked to your pro­file with an option to include your per­son­al phone num­ber or their 247 hotline. 
  • Pet own­ers can sign into their account and cre­ate a Lost Pet Report if a pet goes missing. 
  • Any­one who finds your fur­ry friend can sim­ply look up that code and cre­ate a Found Pet Report in seconds. 

As soon as Docu­Pet receives your lost pet alert or you call their 247 hot­line, they get to work on find­ing your pet by col­lab­o­rat­ing with Face­book groups, local ani­mal shel­ters and oth­er ani­mal ser­vice providers in the area. The Lost Pet Report is also sent to the Docu­Pet mem­bers in your community. 

A valid licence not only pro­tects our own pets but also sup­ports our local ani­mal shel­ters and the ani­mals in their care. To know more about how Docu­Pet has made pet licens­ing easy and valu­able for every pet own­er, log on to their web­site – www​.docu​pet​.com

About the New Brunswick SPCA

Found­ed in 1881, New Brunswick SPCA (NBSC­PA) is the only province-wide orga­ni­za­tion man­dat­ed to enforce ani­mal pro­tec­tion laws. A ded­i­cat­ed team of 15 Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Offi­cers is vest­ed with the author­i­ty under the SPCA Act of New Brunswick to inves­ti­gate and, if nec­es­sary, lay charges, seize ani­mals, or rec­om­mend court orders to per­sons sus­pect­ed of abuse and cru­el­ty to animals. 

The NBSP­CA is a reg­is­tered char­i­ty that exists to pro­vide province-wide lead­er­ship in the humane treat­ment of ani­mals. We enforce rel­e­vant leg­is­la­tion, ensure shel­ter for neglect­ed or abused domes­ti­cat­ed ani­mals and agri­cul­tur­al ani­mals, and pro­vide pub­lic edu­ca­tion and advo­ca­cy to empow­er New Brunswick­ers to help ani­mals live long and healthy lives.
