Dog registration is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. All dogs should be registered with Council to ensure that effective dog control can be carried out. All income generated from registration and expiations is dedicated to animal management and public safety, new initiatives to improve relationships between owners and other residents and recreational opportunities for pets and their owners.
Dog registration is mandatory in South Australia. If you obtain a dog older than three months of age, then you have 14 days in which to register the dog. It doesn't matter at what time of year your first registration is done.
The registered owner of a dog must be over 16 years of age.
The Port Pirie Regional Council has elected to set its standard fee for the 2016 to 2017 registration period at $60. The fees are in line with changes to the Dog and Cat Management Act which allows Council’s to set their own dog registration fees to fully fund the current animal management services
The standard fee can be reduced if you are eligible for concession and desexed dog discounts. The concessions include 10% concessions to dog owners that take the extra care to have their dogs trained and /or microchipped.
