Pet registration notices hitting mailboxes soon

Published: 30 May 2022

Residents can expect to receive their pet registration renewal letters in the mail shortly.

All cat and dog owners who register their pet during the month of June can save anywhere between 30 and 50 per cent off their pet registration fees.

These fees are put towards the cost of running council’s Animal Management Centre, which provides care for lost pets and tries to reunite them with their owners.

As part of the pet registration discount period, council is encouraging residents to celebrate responsible pet ownership by submitting photos of their pet to go into the draw to win one of four $100 pet vouchers.

Each week council will be asking pet owners to submit a photo matching the weekly theme:

  • WEEK 1 (May 30-June 5) - Favourite photo of your pet
  • WEEK 2 (June 6-12) – Show us your pet wearing its registration tag
  • WEEK 3 (June 13-19) - Your pet exercising (ie: walking, playing fetch)
  • WEEK 4 (June 20-26) - Cutest pet.

Visit the webpage to enter the competition.

Pet owners can also visit any Mackay Regional Council library branch during the month of June to pick up a free doggy doo bag dispenser.

Simply fill in a short quiz about our off-leash dog areas and take home a bag dispenser to help keep our region clean and free of doggy doo disasters.

The libraries are also inviting residents to come along to their Pets are Part of our Community Too event on Tuesday, May 31, and Tuesday, June 28, from 3.30pm to 4.30pm at Gordon White Library.

Discover more about the amazing resources available to you and your pet through this meet and greet event with one of council’s Local Laws officers and one of their current pound pets.
