Dog registration extended for one year

Somerset dog owners who currently have their dogs registered with Council will have their registration extended through to June 2023.

Somerset Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann said Council was proactively supporting residents with registered dogs.

“To reward residents who have done the right thing and registered their dogs with council, we are offering residents a one-year dog rego extension,” Cr Lehmann said.

“This is one less thing these households need to worry about particularly on the back of a global pandemic and two declared flood events in Somerset.

“All residents with registered dogs have to do is read the expiry date on their current yellow dog rego tags as being 30 June 2023 instead of 30 June 2022. It’s that simple.

No new tags would be issued for the new financial year.


Wild dog Baiting on Soon in Somerset

Somerset Regional Council will hold its next wild dog baiting day on Monday, 11 July.

A Council employee will attend the various sites to assist with the preparation of 1080 poison baits for the control of dingoes/wild dogs.

These sites include Middle Creek, Bryden between 7.30am-9am, Fernvale Campdraft Grounds between 10.30am-12pm, Kilcoy Showgrounds between 7.30am-9am and the Moore Pony Club Grounds, Station Street between 10.30am-12pm.
