In just three weeks since the new dog licensing program launched, dog owners have raised over $1,600 for the Vernon and District BC SPCA.
“Pet owners have the option of upgrading to a designer tag, and DocuPet donates 20% of all designer tag purchases back to the community. With over 160 designs to choose from, pet owners have responded enthusiastically, which has translated into huge benefits for the local SPCA,” said Ashley Gregerson, Communications Officer, RDNO.
“We are so pleased to be receiving such amazing support from our community through DocuPet and the RDNO. Licensing your pet is so important, and now another benefit is helping other local animals in our care,” said Chelsea Taylor, Branch Manager, BC SPCA Vernon & District Branch.
Pet owners can register their furry friends from the safety and comfort of their own home by going online to rdno.docupet.ca or calling the toll free number 1-855-249-1370. Residents can also purchase a licence in-person at the Regional District office located on Aberdeen Road, Coldstream Municipal Office or Lumby Municipal Office. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, debit or credit.
The annual licence fee is $20.00, and a designer tag upgrade is $15.00. Pet owners are encouraged to get their licence by December 31 to avoid a late fee. For additional information and assistance with licensing, contact the RDNO at (250) 550-3700.
