July is National Desexing Month, so come along to A Dog's Day Out and celebrate with us!

GREAT NEWS: Council is expanding the desexing rebate to all residents during the month of July 2024! 

Having a dog can bring great joy, but it also comes with great responsibility including desexing, vaccinations, registration, exercise, training and more.

  • It is compulsory for dogs to be registered with Council from 12 weeks of age and within 14 days of owners moving to the Fraser Coast region.
  • Council offers free first-year dog registration to encourage residents to register their animals.
  • Council also offers a $100 rebate for dogs desexed in July 2024 (Concession cards are not needed, as these requirements will be waived in July 2024) 
  • Pet owners who desex their dogs will enjoy ongoing savings with lower registration fees for desexed dogs, a reward for being a responsible pet owner.
  • Making sure your pet is registered and microchipped will ensure your pet is returned home quickly if it happens to escape the yard.
  • Your registration fees contribute to the cost of Council’s animal management operations, including compliance inspections, dog attack investigations, running the adoption centre, fenced off-leash areas, and responsible pet care programs.
  • It is mandatory to keep your dog registration details up to date, which includes your current residential address and contact details. Additionally, it is required to always display the registration tag for your dog.
  • If you have lost or damaged your registration tag, please contact Council for a new tag.
