Found! City bylaw officers bring Titus home for the holidays
December 20, 2016 -
A pet licence helped City of Kingston bylaw officers bring Titus the dog home after he had been lost for 57 days.
Bylaw officers Angie Hogle and Tina Campbell found Titus, after someone who spotted him called in to the City. Hogle and Campbell brought Titus to a vet to be checked out after making contact with his owner.
"This is a great day for our partnership with DocuPet and our program. Our bylaw officers did some great work as well," says Lacricia Turner, manager, licensing & enforcement.
Reporting a licensed pet lost using DocuPet sends a notification to the local shelter, bylaw officers, and any other pet owners who have opted in to receiving notifications of this nature. DocuPet also operates a Facebook page where reports of licensed lost pets are shared.
DocuPet's Lost Pet Alert system and local Facebook groups made the public awareness of Titus possible.
DocuPet is contracted by the City to license cats and dogs under the City's Responsible Pet Ownership Program and in accordance with the Animal Control Bylaw. If you haven't licensed your pet, go to Kingston.docupet.com to do it online today.
