CHANGES TO THE DOG & CAT MANAGEMENT ACT 1995

Changes to the Act have resulted in a re-classification of circumstances that a rebate may be claimed. 

For the majority, there will only be 2 classifications - standard dog and non standard dog.

There will be a 50% rebate off the standard and non-standard dog registration charges for concession card holders. 
NB. there is NO concession for working (livestock) dogs

A third classification is that of working (livestock) dogs, a signed certification must be produced to have a dog registered under this classification and a rebate is available for these dogs that are micro-chipped. 

From 1st July 2018, mandatory micro-chipping and de-sexing for all dogs born after that date will apply with very heavy penalties for non compliance. 

For further information, and the reasoning behind these changes, please visit www.goyder.sa.gov.au or contact Councils General Inspector, Barry Richards on 8892 0100.
