New Lifetime Dog Registration Tags
Council now offers lifetime dog registration tags.
A metal tag will replace your dog’s plastic tag and just like your pet, the new metal tag is for life!
Metal tags are convenient and save thousands of plastic tags being discarded annually. You will still renew your dog’s registration annually as normal, however you will no longer be issued a plastic tag every year.
If your lifetime metal tag is lost or damaged, replacement tags will be available from Council for $10.
Under the Dog Control Act 2000, Section 9(2(a)), all dogs over the age of six (6) months are required to be registered and microchipped.
Council offers discounts for early payment, desexed dogs and for some special registrations.
