What your dog registration pays for

Dog registration fees benefit all dog owners and the public.

Dog registration fees help us:

  • ensure all dogs are registered
  • respond to reports of dog attacks and complaints about barking and stray animals
  • provide shelter services: impoundment, care for strays and reuniting dogs with their owners
  • rehome dogs through our adoption programmes
  • provide dog safety education for dog owners, schools and the public
  • enforce compliance, issue infringements and patrol beaches and parks
  • prosecute serious dog related offences (under the Dog Control Act ).
