The Welland and District SPCA 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 pet in the community is licensed. Once compliant, our program offers additional value to pet owners through our HomeSafe™ Lost Pet System.
Licensing is Mandatory.
Before we can focus on the benefits, we need to start with the facts. Annual pet licences are required in nearly every city and town across North America. Licensing plays an important role in the Town 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 pet gets along with other pets or people. A licence allows town 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.
Fees and Fines
There's no ifs ands or buts about it, licences are required for all dogs living in Lincoln. They must be renewed every year prior to the expiration date (don't worry, we'll remind you!).
Failure to present a valid licence may result in a fine of $120.
Voluntary cat licences are available in Lincoln. Although not required, licensing your cat is a great way to help ensure their safety, support the Welland SPCA and take advantage of the additional benefits offered through DocuPet.
Please note that Lincoln's licensing program operates on a calendar year. This means that all licences expire on December 31st.
