Dog registration discs in South Australia will be issued once-off from July this year and replace the yearly discs previously issued to reduce waste and streamline pet registration. From July 1, 2018, registered dogs will be issued with a permanent registration number and a once-off grey coloured disc. Pet owners will need to continue to renew their dog’s registration yearly.
Dog and Cat Management Board Secretary Andrew Lamb said the once-off disc and permanent dog registration number will significantly reduce South Australia’s plastic landfill.
“The new permanent registration number is linked with the dog, even if the owner moves to another South Australian council or if the dog changes owners,” Mr Lamb said.
