Josephine County Dog Licensing Goes Online with Innovative DocuPet Service Partnership

News Image
The Josephine County Animal Shelter has partnered with an online pet-licensing platform to make the process of dog licensing easier for local residents.

Pet licenses can now be purchased online through DocuPet as well as by mail, by phone or in person at 715 NW Dimmick Street in Grants Pass. Previously, licensing was only available in person through Josephine County Public Health.

Through pet licensing and its complimentary HomeSafe 24/7 lost pet service, DocuPet offers residents an effective pet identification and reunification program that keeps pets out of shelters and returns them home safely. Though licensing is mandatory for dogs in Josephine County, some pet owners may not be aware of the need to license their dogs regularly or the benefits of registration.

Every DocuPet tag is equipped with the free HomeSafe 24/7 lost pet service and may double as a pet's official license. DocuPet tags are assigned a unique code on the back which links directly to a pet's secure online profile, making it easy for anyone who finds a lost pet to reference the code and create a Found Pet Report in seconds.

Pet owners can also create lost pet reports as soon as they realize their pet has gone missing. In addition, DocuPet's dedicated dispatch staff is available at all times to reunite lost pets with their families.

All dogs in Josephine County are required to be licensed and vaccinated against rabies. For more information, visit "josephinecounty.gov/license."
