Porirua City is at the orange setting of the traffic lights protection framework. This means some changes to the way we work and live, as protections are in place to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community. Find out more
Porirua City is a dog city. We love our kurī, and care about the welfare of all animals, at home and on the farm. Get more information on registering your dog, pay a dog fine, microchipping, owning more than two dogs, desexing and more.
Our Animal Control team offers a range of services to kurī owners including microchipping and desexing.
If you spot an animal that looks lost – or not where it should be – please get in touch with us hohoro.
Whether you own an animal or are just looking after it for a short time, you must keep it under control at all times and inside the boundaries of your property, and make sure it doesn’t create a nuisance.
Let's face it, some animals and pests can be hōhā. If there are bees, wasps, or vermin in our public land, parks, and reserves, get in touch and we'll sort it out.
