It is a state requirement that all dogs are registered in Queensland. Dog registrations are valid for 12 months and must be renewed each year by 30 June. By registering your dog with Ipswich City Council, not only do you support responsible pet ownership, it also means your dog has the best possible chance to be reunited with you if lost.
1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022
Ipswich City Council will be conducting its annual Systematic Inspection Program for dog registrations in accordance with the Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008.
Commencing 1 July 2021, authorised officers will conduct door to door visits to properties in the Ipswich region to identify unregistered dogs, providing dog owners with the opportunity to register them.
The objective of the program is to identify unregistered dogs to update Council’s animal register to assist with the delivery of animal management services.
The Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 requires that all dogs over the age of 3 months be registered within the Local Government in which they are kept.
For further information on the registration process, fees and to enquire about obtaining a copy of the program visit Ipswich.qld.gov.au or contact council (07) 3810 6666.
