TIME TO REGISTER YOUR DOG

Did you know all dogs older than three months must be registered by law?

Council has issued its annual dog registration renewal notices, with payment due 26 June.

If your dog has been desexed in the last 12 months, or if you’ve changed address or contact details, please contact council to update your records.

Owners of desexed dogs receive a significant discount, with the annual registration fee being $50 or $35 for some pensioners.

It’s also free to register a dog for the first time if it’s desexed and under six months of age.

Fees are used to fund a range of services designed to help dogs, their owners, and the wider community.

To register, visit lockyervalley.qld.gov.au/dog-registration or contact 1300 005 872.
