Dog registrations due on Friday

DOG owners across the region are reminded that Bundaberg Regional Council dog registrations are due this Friday.

Council health and regulatory services spokesman Wayne Honor said council's new registration fee structure meant it was now very affordable for all dog owners to ensure the registration of their animals.

"Following a community survey undertaken prior to setting registration fees for the current financial year, council responded to feedback by reducing the cost of registering a de-sexed and microchipped dog to just $25 per year.

"The new fee structure also introduced a special registration of $33 for an entire puppy under 12 months of age.

"The view of veterinarians generally is that puppies need to achieve a period of maturity prior to de-sexing. The new fee is for the initial registration only.

"Dog registration and microchipping is a State Government legislative requirement under the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 and is compulsory throughout Queensland, not just Bundaberg."

Registration payments can be made via any of the options listed on the back of the registration notice or in person at any Council Service Centre.

Any dog owner who may not have received a notice is invited to call into council to arrange registration of their dog.
