    Sanat Barbara County Animal Services Makes Pet Licensing Easier

    Through a new partnership with Docupet, value is added to pet licensing at no additional cost.

    Though pet licensing is mandatory for dogs and voluntary for cats in Santa Barbara County, many local pet owners do not license their pets regularly. Now, licensing pets is easier than ever for County residents as Santa Barbara County Animal Services (SBCAS) launches its partnership with DocuPet, a world-leading pet profile, lost pet, and licensing platform. Through pet licensing and their complimentary HomeSafe™ 24/7 lost pet service, DocuPet offers residents an effective pet identification and reunification program that keeps pets out of shelters and returns them home safely at no additional cost. With the announcement of this new partnership, DocuPet and SBCAS hope to attract community pet owners to feel motivated to protecting their pets and ensuring their safe return.

    Other benefits include hundreds of colorful and unique designer tag styles online or design their own tags with an easy-to-use customization tool. Every DocuPet tag is equipped with the free HomeSafe™ 24/7 lost pet service and may double as a pet’s official license. DocuPet tags are assigned a unique code on the back, which links directly to a pet’s secure online profile, making it easy for anyone who finds a lost pet to reference the code and create a Found Pet Report in seconds. Pet owners can also create Lost Pet Reports as soon as they realize their pet has gone missing. In addition, DocuPet’s dedicated dispatch staff is available 24/7 to reunite lost pets with their families around the clock.

    “We’re thrilled to join forces with DocuPet, as their online licensing solution promises to bring unparalleled convenience to pet owners while prioritizing the safety of our furry friends in the community,” expressed Sarah Aguilar, Director of Animal Services. “Along with Project PetSafe, this pet licensing initiative aims to not only streamline processes but also contribute to minimizing the shelter population. By embracing this program, residents have the opportunity to play a pivotal role in safeguarding their pets and fostering a community where every pet receives the care they deserve.”

    With a mission to provide a safe and happy home for every pet, DocuPet’s innovative platform will supply significant resources to SBCAS, allowing it to operate efficiently and focus on delivering critical animal services.

    All dogs in Santa Barbara County must be licensed and vaccinated against rabies. Cat licenses are also available to pet owners, and while they are not required, licensing your cat is a great way to help ensure their safety. Pet owners can learn more and register for pet licenses online at countyofsb.docupet.com. Licensing by mail, phone, or in person is also available.
