There are two important reasons to
license your dog in The City of Boulder.

1. Dog tags get stray animals home and reduce shelter stays.

2. License fees help fund important community initiatives.

Attention Boulder Guardians: If you have previously licensed a dog with the City of Boulder you will be receiving a renewal letter or email with instructions detailing how to activate your online account and process your renewal. If you would like to renew your 2019 license immediately please call us at 1-877-239-6072 for your online access code.

Pet Tags Matter

When we learned up to 60% of animal shelter revenue comes from pet license sales, but that a mere 13% of pet owners license their animals, we found our mission.

Since 2014, DocuPet has created our solution to increase awareness of the need and importance of pet licenses, to provide real value to pet owners, and to reduce the number of intakes for local animal shelters.

We've partnered with the City of Boulder to make every pet license as valuable to you as it is to animal safety here.

With Your DocuPet License You Will Receive:

  • The HomeSafe™ Lost Pet Service
  • Beautiful Tags linked to a secure online profile
  • Perks for Pet Owners: Get Gift Vouchers and Deals
  • Thanks for supporting animal welfare in your community
  • DocuPet membership includes your Boulder Dog License

Have you licensed a dog in Boulder before? We should have your record.

If your dog becomes lost, anyone who finds your furry friend can file an online report that will be sent to you immediately. You can also create a Lost Pet Report that will send a message to other local pet owners.

Need help? Call our 24/7 HomeSafe™ Hotline at 1-877-239-6072 to get the support you need to be reunited with your little buddy. HomeSafe™ is free with your DocuPet membership.

Beautiful Tags that Work for You

No more stamped metal tags. DocuPet tags are made of zinc alloy with an embossed logo on the front and your pet's unique code on the back. These codes are tied to your secure online profile where you can add additional photos, contact details, and care instructions to ensure your pet is cared for properly whenever they are away from you.
