Auck dog registration fees to remain unchanged
Dog registration fees to remain unchanged for next 12 months
Auckland City’s Planning and Regulatory committee resolved at their meeting yesterday that dog registration fees will remain at their current levels for the 2005/2006 financial year.
Councillor Glenda Fryer, chairperson of the Planning and Regulatory Committee says that it is vital that all dogs in the city are registered – both for council records and animal control purposes, as well as to enable lost dogs to be reunited with their owners.
“Registering dogs is important and by keeping registration fees at the same level we are aiming to ensure they are affordable to all dog owners.”
There are many ways to reduce the costs of registration, either through neutering your dog or, as an owner, completing a good dog owner course. For more information on these courses, call Animal Control Services on (09) 360 0750.
Dog registration letters will be sent to all dog owners on Auckland City’s records in mid-May and must be completed and returned to Auckland City by 31 July. Dog owners who do not receive a letter during May should contact Auckland City on (09) 379 2020 as it is still their responsibility to ensure their dog is registered.
Auckland City is home to approximately 19,000 dogs.
