Wellington North dog owners are getting an amnesty if they haven’t yet purchased a dog tag.

From now until the end of the year, dog owners will be able to get a tag for free by visiting the municipal office in Kenilworth.

Mayor Andy Lennox says an estimated two-thirds of dogs in Wellington North don’t have tags. Lennox adds the tags are good for pet owners because it can assist in finding a lost dog.

Wellington North hopes the amnesty will encourage more dog owners to buy tags next year.
