dog means not just making sure it’s cared for and fed properly, but registered
It’s that time of year to get your pooch registered and Porirua City Council is reminding responsible owners that it can be done quickly and easily.
Dog registration fees pay for dog patrols, public education, running the pound service to house lost or roaming dogs, investigating dog attacks, and responding to complaints.
Porirua has about 5000 registered dogs, which have to be re-registered by July 1 each year. Renewal notices will be going out soon.
You can get a discount on the fee if:
Automatic part payments can be made but there is an extra charge for late registrations.
Dogs that are registered and wear a tag are more easily identified and can be returned to owners quickly if they are found, the Council’s monitoring, compliance and customer manager Leonie McPhail says.
It is easy to register online, but you can still do it over the counter at the Council’s reception on Hagley St.
