Responsible dog owners in the Isaac region are urged to keep an eye on their letterboxes for their dog renewal notices which are set to arrive from 2 August 2021.

Residents that pay the renewal before 3 September 2021, will qualify for Isaac Regional Council’s early bird discount of 50 per cent.

  • Council is also offering the following for registered and responsible dog owners:
  • Free puppy registrations for pups who microchipped and aged less than 12 months.
  • 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 2 August 2021 and 3 September 2021 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 3 September 2021.

For those registering for the first time, whether they’ve forgotten or moved to Isaac, will qualify for pro rata registration discounts no matter what time of year. Visit https://www.isaac.qld.gov.au/community/obligations to download the registration form. Registration fees help to fund essential services for animal management including Council’s Animal Management Centres.

When a registered dog is picked up by Council, compliance officers return them for free for the first time.

If it is unregistered dog, the owners will be up for an impoundment fee and will be required to pay the registration fee before the dog is released. Avoid this by registering, microchipping and making sure the yard is secure and safe.

For more information on dog registrations or if you haven’t received a renewal notice by 13 August 2021, please contact Council’s Customer Service Centre which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week on 1300 ISAACS or call into your local Council office.
