3 dogs

In support of the ongoing management of domestic dogs across Nhulunbuy, the Nhulunbuy Corporation has commenced the phasing out of 3 Dog permits.

Those who currently hold a 3-Dog-Permit will be grandfathered for the three dogs attached to the permit and continue to pay the annual fee until such time that any of the three dogs have passed away, transferred out or have become de-registered. This will result in the permit becoming revoked.

The NC has determined that the maximum number of dogs that are able to be kept on any premises within the town lease will be (2) two dogs. Random property dog audits continue to be conducted throughout the year, and residents are reminded that if there are more that two dogs found to be at any address, infringements may be issued.

Below is the extract from the NC Animal Control By-laws.

23 Conditions of registration 

(3) A registration may be subject to the conditions the Corporation thinks fit and specifies in the registration including conditions that may lead to immediate revocation of the registration if they are breached or not complied with.
