Somerville has partnered with Cambridge-based startup GoPetie so that residents can license their dogs online. Dog owners can still fetch licenses in-person at City Hall or on the City’s new Dog Licensing web portal. The GoPetie app is free and it offers benefits beyond licensing. For example, by allowing dog owners to upload photos and descriptions of their dogs the app helps Animal Control to reunite owners with their lost pets. GoPetie can be downloaded from your phone’s app store.
