Registration renewals are due by 30 June 2021 with the registration period running from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022.
During the Council meeting held on 14 April 2021, Council endorsed the continuation of the 50% fee waiver on animal registration fees as part of the COVID-19 initiative. This decision results in no change to registration fees for animal owners from the 2019/20 registration year.
Residents are required to register and microchip both their dogs and cats from 12 weeks of age, with cat registration introduced in November 2019. Registration greatly assists Council to reduce the amount of stray and unclaimed animals in the Maranoa.
Council supports responsible animal ownership by offering a significant registration discount if your pet is desexed, with pensioner concession also available.
Upon payment, the renewal receipt serves as your pet's registration certificate. This year's registration tag is green and should be affixed to your animal at all times. Please remember to remove outdated tags.
A secure online payment portal is available allowing registration payments to be made with a credit card. Visit the Council website www.maranoa.qld.gov.au and click the Make a Payment tab.
Other options include:
- Online via BPay
- By phone to Council – call 1300 007 662
- By mail – PO Box 620, Roma Qld 4455
- By visiting a Council Customer Service Centre
New animal registrations can be completed in person or by contacting Council.
If residents have not received a renewal notice by Friday, 18 June, or are needing to update their animal details or the owner's contact information, please contact Council's Community Safety Team on 1300 007 662.
Please note failing to register your dog or cat may result in a $266 fine being issued.
