A pet can be man’s (or woman’s) best friend, but having a pet is also a serious responsibility.
Anyone who owns a pet within Paroo Shire has a duty to be a responsible pet owner, as members of the community have a right to live without negative interference from other people’s pets.
Below are Council's forms and fact sheets around cat/dog registration, permits for more than two animals, etc.
Registering your dog/s
Registering your dog/s ensures that your pet can be returned to you if it becomes lost, and fees go towards providing animal management services to the community and training staff to deal with animal-related emergencies.
It is a state requirement that all dogs in Queensland are microchipped and registered with their local council.
- First entire animal: $60.00
- Second entire animal (and working dogs): $80.00
- Dangerous dog registration: $320.00
- Desexed animal: $30.00
- Second desexed animal: $50.00
- Aged pensioners discount: $10.00 off / animal
When your dog/s are registered you receive one free release for that animal over the registration period and discounts on parvo vaccinations, which will cost you less overall. All unregistered dogs found wandering will cost the owner five times the amount of the usual registration fee.
