Port Adeliade Enfield Council has issued 170 unregistered dog owners with fines between January and March. This is four times the number of fines that were issued last year in the same period. Why the crackdown? According to the council’s community development director, Stephen Melville, "Too many unregistered dogs ended up in shelters because staff could not find their owners." Registering a dog costs $65; however, there are discounts available for dogs who are desexed and microchipped. Further, you may be eligible for a $100 voucher towards desexing and microchipping.
