**New Pet Licensing Program to Launch in January 2020**
This January the Town of Petawawa is launching a new dog and cat licensing program in partnership with DocuPet.  In order to keep licensing simple, 2019 licenses are now valid until February 28, 2020.  DocuPet's licensing program includes a FREE Lost Pet Service, the ability to upgrade to a tag of your choice, and personalization options.  This new process is being introduced to improve customer service and convenience, increase efficiency, improve compliance, and reduce labour costs.  Pet tags can still be purchased at the Town Office, but the tag will be delivered to you by mail. Pet tags will now be sold on a 365 day basis as opposed to the calendar year; meaning no matter what time of year you move to the municipality and purchase your pet tag, the tag will be valid for 365 days.  If your pet tag is not renewed on the anniversary date, the increased renewal fee shall apply the next day.  Scentral Bark Dog Park tags will now be sold in person at the Community Services Office at 16 Civic Centre Road.  Dog Park tags will also be sold on a 365 day basis for $20.00.  We will update this page with additional details as they become available. 
 
[The Town of Petawawa does not license pets on the Garrison's North and South Town Sites.]
