Dog de-sexing

Poka raho aa kurii

We recommend that dogs be desexed if they are not intended for breeding. Dogs that are de-sexed are more sociable (and less aggressive), don’t wander/roam, are healthier and live longer.

Lots of healthy animals in New Zealand are euthanised each year due to the over population. In many cases, animals are bred by accident.

Funding to desex your dog may be available from either DC Rescue Dogs or Hurrah Desexy Revolution.

How to receive one year free registration 

If your dog has been desexed in the past 12 months then you are able to apply for a year's free dog registration.

Simply attach written proof or a copy of your dog’s de-sexing certificate (certified within 12 months) when you register your dog and you will get a year’s free dog registration.

This is subject to the following condition:

  • The dog is not classified as a dangerous dog that has been required to be neutered or spayed under provisions set out in the Dog Control Amendment Act 2003.
  • Written proof is provided by a certified veterinary surgeon who has adequately described the dog involve
