Dog registration at Forum North.

If your dog (or even outrageously cute little puppy) is 12 weeks of age or older, it must be registered by 31 July, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Registering your dog is WAAAAY cheaper than getting a fine for not registering it.

The registration fee varies depending on whether your dog is a service dog, whether it is de-sexed or not, or whether it’s a working dog or a dangerous breed, but in every case paying this month is the best option cost-wise.

The fine for having an unregistered dog is $300. If the dog is impounded a $122 impound fee is added to the $300 fine, along with $20 a day for each day the dog is impounded.

​Late Fee Standard (dog not de-sexed) ​$88.00
​Discounted Fee Owner (desexed dog) ​$47.00
