Rural New Brunswick has partnered with DocuPet Inc. to provide an enhanced pet licensing experience. DocuPet Inc. specializes in creating and managing pet licensing programs. It's our job to ensure that every dog in the community is licensed. Once compliant, our program offers additional value to pet owners through our Lost Pet Service and DocuPet Rewards Program.
Licensing is Mandatory.
Before we can focus on the benefits, we need to start with the facts. Annual dog licences are required in nearly every city and town across North America. Licensing plays an important role in the region and various officials ability to keep our communities safe – this includes our children, our pets, and us.
Pets get out, they get sick, and unfortunately not every pet gets along with other pets or people. A licence allows region officials and citizens to identify an animal, contact their owner, and make decisions that are in the best interest of the pet and the community.
Fees and Fines
There's no ifs ands or buts about it, licences are required for all dogs living in rural New Brunswick. They must be renewed prior to the expiration date (don't worry, we'll remind you!).
Failure to present a valid licence may result in a fine ranging between $140 and $640.
Please note that rural New Brunswick's licensing program operates on a 365 day cycle. This means that all licences expire on the date they were purchased, in the year of expiry.
Voluntary cat licences are available in rural New Brunswick. Although not required, licensing your cat is a great way to help ensure their safety, support the New Brunswick SPCA and take advantage of the additional benefits offered through DocuPet.
