The project was inaugurated by Mayor K Sreekumar at Barton Hill Anganwadi by handing over licences to pet owners.
So far, a total of 6,238 pet dogs have been registered with the corporation.
Further registration for a licence, microchip implantation and anti-rabies injection can be taken at the 15 veterinary dispensaries of the city corporation.
A team from the corporation aims to sterilise stray dogs in regions with a larger concentration of such dogs.
A few days ago, the team found close to 20 stray dogs.
