It’s that time of year again when all dog owners must ensure that their dogs are registered.
Dog registrations are due from 1 July, with discounted registrations fees available for July.
A re-registration notice will arrive in your inbox or letterbox by 1 July. Payment can be made online, by internet banking or at a Council service centre.
All dogs older than 3 months must be registered every year (July– June). The fine for an unregistered dog is $300.
Fees collected from registration help to fund the Council’s 24/7 dog control operation. This includes community education and the Dog Smart programme in schools, along with enforcement activities, operating the dog pound and providing free microchipping for the district’s dogs.
If paid by 31 July 2019, the discounted registration fee applicable is:
· $10 Administration/Owner fee
· $30 for each dog owned by the same person and held at the same locality.
Payment after 31 July 2019 the full registration fee applicable is:
· $15 Administration/Owner fee
· $40 for each dog owned by the same person and held at the same locality.
