“Running an effective pet identification program is incredibly important for the welfare of pets. Keeping lost pets out of shelters and returning them to their parents is our priority at DocuPet. Over the past six years, we have helped thousands of lost pets get back home, but there is still the same joy in the office every time we get the news that we have another success story. We are really looking forward to helping pets in Inyo County get home safe,” says Grant Goodwin, CEO of DocuPet.

Animal Services

“Our shared mission with DocuPet is to provide safe and happy homes for all pets” said Carma Roper, Inyo County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer. “There are dozens of pets that come into our shelter or into the care of an Animal Services Officer each month. Pets with proper licenses are returned home much faster, reducing their time spent at the shelter and opening up those spots for animals that really need our help.”

Licensing your pet in Inyo County is required by law. Pet owners may license their pet online by visiting and providing proof of rabies vaccination along with the pet’s personal details. Licenses must be purchased for a one-year period.

Pet owners can learn more, license and renew their dog license online at, or over the phone at 1-855-249-1370. Licensing by mail and in person is also available.
