Dog registration a life saver

WITH registration notices now in the mail, Mayor Ron Bellingham has issued a timely reminder to Southern Downs residents of the importance of registering their dogs.

“If council officers pick up a dog without a registration tag, we are unable to contact the owner to advise them their dog has been impounded,” Cr Bellingham said.

“Unfortunately, if a dog has not been collected from the pound within three business days, it will be euthanased.”

By paying the annual registration fee, residents are assured of council having the necessary details to arrange the safe return of impounded dogs.

Registration fees for each dog over the age of three months in the former Stanthorpe Shire and each dog over the age of four months in the former Warwick Shire area are as follows:

Desexed: Annual fee $30 ($15 if paid by March 19)

Not desexed (former Warwick): Annual fee $110 ($95 if paid by March 19)

Not desexed (former Stanthorpe): Annual fee $70 ($55 if paid by March 19)

For more information on dog registration, call council’s customer service team on 4661 0300 (Warwick) or 4681 5500 (Stanthorpe).
