Town of New Tecumseth Dog Licensing Program

NEW TECUMSETH, ON – All dog owners residing within the Town of New Tecumseth are required to license their dog annually. All dog licenses expire 365 days from the date of purchase or from the date of the previous licenses expiry – whichever is later.

Licenses can be purchased online at newtecumseth.docupet.com, over the phone with credit card payment, by calling toll free to 1-855-249-1370 between 9 am and 5pm, in person by visiting Town Hall at 10 Wellington St. E., Alliston or the JOC at 6558 8th Line, County Road 1, Beeton or at participating vendor locations – http://newtecumseth.ca/residents/services/dog-tags/

Anyone who has previously licensed a dog with the Town of New Tecumseth that is due to renew should have received a reminder by email or mail from DocuPet to renew their license. DocuPet will be making phone calls to owners who have not renewed. When completing a license renewal, you can keep the physical dog tag that you already have, or opt to receive a new one, if required.

“If you no longer have your pet, or if you have moved out of Town it is important to let the Town or DocuPet know so that we can update our records,” said Meagan McLean, DocuPet’s Customer Service Representative.

DocuPet’s pet licensing program also offers a number of unique benefits including a proven Lost Pet System that has already returned seven New Tecumseth dogs to their owners. The system also includes online pet profiles and a rewards program.

One in three pets become lost at some point in their lives. Licensing plays a critical role in helping these pets return home safely.
