Free neutering services offered on the Kāpiti Coast
Council is offering free neutering services for menacing dogs thanks to funding provided by the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA).
Environmental Standards Manager Jacquie Muir says that Kāpiti Coast District Council is one of 34 councils in the country receiving a grant for neutering menacing dogs, which aims to reduce incidents of dog attacks.
“All five classifications of menacing dogs – American Pit Bull, Brazilian Fila, Dogo Argentino, Japanese Tosa and Perro de Presa Canario – are eligible for the free neutering. Unregistered menacing dog breeds that have never been registered with the Kāpiti Coast District Council are also eligible for free microchipping and registration under the campaign.”
