Dog registration month is about
to begin around the country, and Ashburton District Council is reminding local
dog owners to register or re-register their pets and working dogs with Council
before the 31 July 2017.
Dog registration forms will soon
arrive in the post, and owners are encouraged to register their pet online from
tomorrow, Saturday 1 July or at Council reception from Monday 3 July.
Council Environmental Monitoring
Manager Rick Catchpowle says it is important owners register their dogs as part
of being a responsible dog owner, and to avoid penalties.
“All dogs three months old and over
must be registered before the end of July. Those with the same registration
details as well as new dogs can all be registered online.
“For owners with dogs whose
registration details have changed, like address, owner or they are now
deceased, simply call the Council office and those changes will be made. You
can then register your pet online. Alternatively, all dogs can be registered at
the Council office on Baring Square West.
“Registering your dog is an
important part of your responsibilities as a dog owner. Unfortunately - aside
from late fees - if dogs are left unregistered, infringements can be issued
from 1 September. After that, unregistered dogs may be seized from 11
September, which is not a nice thing to have to do. To avoid this, please do
the right thing and get your dog registered on time.”
Dogs can be registered online using
an up-to-date browser on the Council website.
