Free pet registration for pensioners who desex dogs
PENSIONERS who desex their pets will receive free dog registration under Noosa Council's new fee structure, saving the majority of pensioners $30 a year.
"Noosa has one of the highest rates of desexed dogs in Queensland at almost 90%," Mayor Noel Playford said.
"So while registration fees will increase for the new financial year, the new fee structure rewards pet owners who have had their dog desexed."
The changes removed a discount for pet owners who'd microchipped their pets.
Dog registration helps fund off-leash dog area maintenance, pound costs, dog patrols, dog waste bags and other animal management activities.
