Dog registration renewal notices with new incentives now available

Isaac Regional Council is launching new incentives thanks to the Paws-itive Blueprint for Responsible Dog Ownership.

**Registration date extended until 25 September***

Isaac Regional Council is launching new incentives thanks to the Paws-itive Blueprint for Responsible Dog Ownership.

For the first time in the Isaac region and to encourage responsible dog ownership, there will be free puppy registrations for pups who microchipped and aged less than 12 months and it doesn’t stop there.

If you are paying your dog registration renewal before the 11 September, you qualify for our early bird discount of 50 per cent.

Council is also now offering the following for registered and responsible dog owners:

Paws-Itive Blueprint for Responsible Dog Ownership

  • Free registration for pensioners who hold concession cards and own a desexed and microchipped dog.
  • 50 per cent discount to anyone aged 65 or over who owns a desexed and microchipped dog
  • Reciprocal Free Dog Registration up to 12 months if the dog has an active registration in another local government area.
  • If you are a member of the Canine Control Council (Dogs Queensland), you will receive a 50 per cent off or take advantage of the early bird discount period between 10 August and 11 September to receive a further 50 per cent discount.
  • In recognition of your responsible dog ownership, desexed and microchipped canines are no more than $20 for owners who have registered their pooches after 11 September!

For those registering for the first time, whether they’ve forgotten or moved to Isaac; you’ll qualify for pro rata registration discounts no matter what time of year you register.

Registration fees help to fund essential services for animal control including our animal management centres. The great thing about registering is that if Council picks up your dog, our Compliance Officers return them for free for the first time.

Ain’t nothing but a pound dog if it’s unregistered – owners will be up for an impoundment fee and registration fee before they’re released home. Register, microchip and make sure your yard is secure and safe.

When you’ve got your dog on side, anything is paw-sible. Discover Isaac Regional Council’s Paws-itive Blueprint for Responsible Dog Ownership at https://www.isaac.qld.gov.au/community/our-pawsitive-blueprint
