Dog registration starts in July

Current location in the site

It’s that time of year again when all dog owners must ensure that their dogs are registered.

All dogs older than 3 months must be registered every year (July-June) under the Dog Control Act 1996. It’s a $300 fine for an unregistered dog. A re-registration notice will arrive in your inbox or letterbox by 1 July.

Registration Fee (GST inclusive)

The 2017-18 fee falls due on 1 July 2017 and may be paid throughout the month of July. This may be done via a payment link when the form is emailed, internet banking, at our Rolleston Headquarters or the service centres in Leeston, Darfield or Lincoln. Alternatively, you may use the prepaid return envelope provided with your registration form.
