Prompt registration pays off for Horowhenua dog owners

Prompt registration pays off for Horowhenua dog owners

Ten lucky Horowhenua dog owners have received a full refund on their dog registrations, including Levin resident Anne Young.

“I was in shock when I heard. I never win anything,” said Mrs Young, who has a greyhound called Emma and received a $64 refund on her registration.

“I had to buy a heater last week, so the money I got back will help to cover the cost of that.”

Mrs Young and the other nine winners went into the draw for the refund because they renewed their dog registrations by Sunday 15 July.

Although the draw for a refund has closed, it’s not too late to register your dog, says Horowhenua District Council’s Compliance Manager Vai Miller.

“Council urges dog owners to ensure their registrations are renewed by Tuesday 31 July to avoid paying a late penalty,” she said.

Dog registration fees remain the same as last year, and range from $45 for a puppy to $265 for a dangerous-classified dog, with most fees between $56 and $114.

Mrs Miller says any dog owners who believe they may have difficulty in paying their dog registration fees are encouraged to contact Council now on 06 366 0999 and discuss possible options.

"We'd rather talk with people now and perhaps arrange a payment plan to avoid the risk of them receiving a $300 infringement fee,” she said.

Payments can be made online by visiting Council’s website, www.horowhenua.govt.nz/pawsonline, and details of how to do so can be found on the dog registration renewal notices. Alternatively, payment can be made in person at Council's office in Levin, at Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom in Foxton or at the Shannon Library.

Detailed information on dog registrations, as well as the schedule of fees and charges for animal control, is available on the Animal Control page of Council’s website.
