Report on pet registration costs presented to councillors

A REPORT looking into the costs of pet registration has been completed by Fraser Coast Regional Council following a petition presented last month.

The petition argued the cost to register dogs and cats was too high in comparison to other local government areas, particularly for pensioners who have animals as companion pets.

It gained more than 700 signatures and included a protest held outside council chambers in Maryborough in February.  

Pet owners currently costs from $50-$105 to register a cat or dog on the Fraser Coast.

With the petition report now complete, the council will now review the registration costs in the next council budget.
