Re­new reg­is­tra­tions for four-legged friends

Canning Times - - NEWS -

THE City of Can­ning is pre­par­ing to roll out this year’s wave of an­i­mal reg­is­tra­tion re­newals.

All pet own­ers must en­sure dogs aged over three months and cats over six months are reg­is­tered with the City and re-reg­is­tered each year.

This year’s an­i­mal reg­is­tra­tion re­newals will be sent out in Oc­to­ber.

Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said pet reg­is­tra­tion was im­por­tant.

“Reg­is­ter­ing your pet has many ben­e­fits. Most im­por­tantly, if your cat or dog is lost and is wear­ing its reg­is­tra­tion tag it will be eas­ily iden­ti­fied and re­united with you and your fam­ily. Pet reg­is­tra­tion is part of re­spon­si­ble cat or dog own­er­ship and it is in the best in­ter­est of the com­mu­nity to en­sure reg­is­tra­tions are up-to-date,” he said.

The City of Can­ning has re­it­er­ated it will take ac­tion if these laws are not fol­lowed and se­ri­ous penal­ties ap­ply.

It also ad­vised res­i­dents to keep up-to-date with spe­cific laws and re­quire­ments around own­er­ship and reg­is­tra­tion of dan­ger­ous and re­stricted dog breeds.
