Register pets early to save cash

PET owners can save 25% on registration fees by making full payments before November to Gladstone Regional Council.

Registration notices will start arriving in registered pet owners’ mailboxes this week and those who make their full payments in the period from October 1 to October 31 will reduce their fees by a quarter.

Council environment and regulation portfolio spokesperson Councillor Col Chapman said pet registration was required by law and fees for 2010/11 had not increased from the previous year’s figures.

Working dogs are not required to be registered or implanted with a microchip, but the council said registration and microchip implanting were the best ways to relocate a lost animal.

Regulated dogs judged by council local law officers to be dangerous, malicious or otherwise restricted due to their breed are more expensive to register.
