ISLAMABAD(KARACHI), 29 June: The Cantonment Board Clifton(CB)on Monday made registration of pet dogs mandatory, days after two dogs attacked a senior lawyer in the metropolis’ upscale Defence area.
The CBC, in a notification, said under section 119 and the Cantonment Act 1924, it is required for all dog owners to get their pets registered. The rate of the form has been fixed at Rs250, while the registration fee will be Rs2,000 per dog.
The form consists of the name of the dog owner, ID card number, address of the place where the dog is kept, mobile number, email ID, the colour of the dog, breed, sex, and reason behind keeping it.
The date of vaccination of the dog will also be entered in the form.
Requirements for registration
A vaccination card, with the signature of the dog owner, a photograph of the dog, a copy of the owner’s ID card, the vaccination report given by the doctors, and a copy of the fee payment challan will be attached along with the form.
Once the form is submitted, it will be the prerogative of the CBC whether it will allow the residents to keep the dog or not.
The CBC said the non-registration of a dog will make it impossible for the board to determine whether the dog has been muzzled and is disease-free or not.
Thus, keeping an unregistered dog will be illegal and it will lead to the detention or culling of the dog, imposition of fines, or legal actions.
The dog registration form can be acquired from the cantonment board’s office.
