SOMERSET Regional Council has extended its dog registration renewal date to 30 June 2021 as part of its coronavirus assistance package.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the change was the latest in a series of relief measures offered to residents in light of COVID-19.

“All residents have to do is read the expiry date on their current purple dog rego tags as being 30 June 2021 instead of 30 June 2020. It’s that simple,” Cr Lehmann said.

“I’m sure residents will understand that we will not be issuing new tags in the current circumstances and obviously we are not asking people to pay any new registration fee for dogs currently registered with Somerset Regional Council.”

“Dogs that are currently not registered with Council, will of course still need to be registered and Council’s introductory dog registration fee of $35 will apply for all new dogs.”

Cr Lehmann said that although council’s dog registration fees were already some of the most affordable in south-east Queensland, the once-off extension would help more than 3000 Somerset residents.

“This will provide additional relief to Somerset residents in these challenging times, he said.

“I would also like to remind residents to give Council a call to check their details in our system are up to date, this ensures wandering or lost pets can be re-united with their owners quickly.”

Council’s customer service team are available from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday on 5424 4000.
