Teller County Regional Animal Shelter has partnered with DocuPet to provide an enhanced pet licensing experience. DocuPet specializes in creating and managing pet licensing programs. It’s our job to ensure that every pet in the community is licensed. Once compliant, our program offers additional value to pet owners through our Lost Pet System and DocuPet Rewards Program.
Licensing is Mandatory.
Before we can focus on the benefits, we need to start with the facts. Annual pet licenses are required in nearly every city and county across North America. Licensing plays an important role in the county and their staff’s ability to keep our communities safe – this includes our children, our pets, and us.
Pets get out, they get sick, and unfortunately not every dog or cat gets along with other pets or people. A license allows county officials and your fellow citizens to identify an animal, contact their owner, and make decisions that are in the best interest of the pet and the community.
There’s no ifs ands or buts about it, licenses are required for all dogs living in Teller County. They must be renewed every year prior to the expiration date (don’t worry, we’ll remind you!).
Pet owners must be age 65 or older to qualify for senior rates. Please note that Teller County's licensing program operates on a 365 day cycle. This means that all licenses expire the following year on the date they were purchased.
Voluntary cat licences are available in Teller County. Although not required, licensing your cat is a great way to help ensure their safety, support the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter and take advantage of the additional benefits offered through DocuPet.
