Here are the fees we charge for animal management, including dog registration fees and pound charges.
All charges include GST, effective from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024.
Dog registration and dog impounding fees are imposed under the Dog Control Act 1996. Impounding fees and droving charges are imposed under the Impounding Act 1955. The fees and charges are necessary to recover the cost to Council of providing these services.
These charges cover the standard cost to Council in carrying out the work listed. However, additional charges may be charged depending on the circumstances, such as additional inspection fees that may be incurred in doing the work noted below.
Dog registration fees are set under the Dog Control Act 1996. Disability assist and specified agency are as defined in section 2 of the Act.
These fees may be added to the fixed fees list above or may be applied as a single charge.
The Environmental Protection Services Manager is authorised to remit, reduce or refund the dog control fee or part of the fee in any particular case or class of dog where there are special grounds for doing so.
The registration fee for a dog that is declared a dangerous dog will be 150% of the level that would apply if it were not so classified (as required by section 32 (1)(e) of the Dog Control Act 1996).
