A reminder to dog owners that annual registrations are due for payment by Wednesday 31 July, the easiest way to pay is online with QuickPay.

A penalty of 25% for late payment applies to all dogs registered after 31 July.  Selected Owners who do not pay by the due date revert to the standard owner rate plus the penalty for late payment. 

All dogs must be registered from 3 months of age and dogs registered for the first time must be microchipped within 2 months of registration.

Dog registration fees pay towards the cost of providing dog control services district wide, including investigation of complaints, dog education in schools, provision of the dog pound and prosecutions of people responsible for dogs that attack.

Council offers a number of discounted registration fees as incentive for responsible dog ownership. Discounted registrations apply to working dogs, guide and hearing dogs and selected owner and super annuitants.

You can pay with your debit or credit card online with QuickPay(external link)
