  • Easy checkout option to donate to the Georgina Animal Shelter
  • Docupet’s Rewards Program

  • Dog - Unaltered - $40
  • Service Dog - No fee
  • Transfer licence (new resident) - $5

Please note that Georgina's licensing program operates on a 365-day cycle. This means that all licences expire the following year on the date they were purchased.

In order to receive the discounted altered rate, you will need to provide proof that your pet has been spayed or neutered. During the licensing process you are required to upload a legible digital file of the certificate. If you cannot locate your certificate, please contact your vet for assistance.


Failure to present a valid licence will result in a fine of $125.
