Animal Tags

Residents are reminded that all dogs and cats residing in the Town of Petawawa shall be licenced and registered with the Town.

Pet Tag Program BannerDue to COVID-19 our municipal office is temporarily closed. Pet tags, however, can be purchased online.  The purchase of dog tags for the off leash dog park, Scentral Bark Dog Park, through the Community Services office is also currently suspended.  Until such time as our municipal offices reopen residents wishing to use the Scentral Bark Dog Park may do so as long as they have a valid 2020 municipal pet tag. 

New Online Pet Licensing Program

The Town of Petawawa has launched 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 are now 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 by the anniversary date, the increased renewal fee shall apply the next day. 

The Town of Petawawa does not license pets on the Garrison's North and South Town Sites.

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.
