Dog owners to receive registration renewal packs

Dog owners to receive registration renewal packs

Packs will be sent out this week asking Auckland city dog owners to renew their dogs’ registration. The packs contain a newly designed, user-friendly application form and information on changes to the Dog Control Act 1996 and Auckland City’s bylaws.

Dog owners are required under the Dog Control Act 1996 to register dogs over the age of three months. This enables Auckland City to improve safety in the community and ensure that a dog can be returned to its owner if it is found wandering or lost. All dogs must be registered by 31 July. Owners who register their dogs after 1 August will be charged a late fee. If the dog remains unregistered, owners will be liable for a $300 fine.

To renew their dog’s registration, owners should fill in the first two pages of the ‘Application to register dog’ form and return the entire document (all four pages) to the council using the envelope provided. The council will then send a receipt and the dog’s new registration tag to the owner.

The application forms can register up to three dogs. If owners have four dogs or more, they will be sent two or more registration packs. A permit is required to keep more than one dog on a property in the Auckland isthmus. On Waiheke and Great Barrier islands, owners need a permit for more than two dogs.

Owners can become eligible for reduced registration fees if they: de-sex their dog have completed the relevant training and hold a dog owner licence.

More information about de-sexing dogs and obtaining a dog owner licence is available at www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/dogs.

To find out how much their dog’s registration will cost, owners can visit http://www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/dogs and use the registration calculator or phone the council’s call centre on (09) 379 2020.
