Change To Dog Registration Period
August 26, 2016: Council has changed the dates for the Animal Registration Period to Thursday, 1 December 2016 to Thursday 30 November 2017. This change is a result of feedback received concerning dog registration renewals coinciding with the Rate Notice payment period.

Dog owners will effectively be given an additional month registration for free during this transition period.

Look for your dog registration renewal notice from late October to early November 2016, instead of it being delivered late September to early October 2016. Please note that your dog will still be considered as being registered in November, even though its tag may show that it has expired, if the animal was registered in the current registration period.

Should you have any questions in relation to the dog registration period, please contact Council's Compliance Branch on (07) 4189-9405.
