PostSubject: Annual fee for ownership of a dog in Bulgaria   Wed May 01, 2013 9:17 am

Got this from my lawyer so I have added it here

Annual fee for ownership of a dog in Bulgaria

According to Local Taxes and Fees of Bulgaria every owner of a dog in Bulgaria has to pay annual fee for ownership of this dog.
This rule concern not only Bulgarian owners but also those EU citizens who permanently live in Bulgaria.

In order to pay this fee the owner has to notify the Municipality by submitting of the declaration within three months period after acquisition of the dog as those owners who had acquired their dogs before 1st of January 2013 should check in the Municipality whether it is not required the declaration to be re-submitted (for example, the Municipality of Varna has such requirement and dog owners in Varna could not pay the annual fee until submitting of new declarations).

This annual fee is paid to the Municipality where the owner is registered as the fee is not due by the owners of:

dogs of disabled persons;

working dogs with public-financed organizations;

dogs used for experimental purposes;

dogs used by the Bulgarian Red Cross;

castrated dogs;

hunting dogs.



The fee should be paid each year before 31st of March or within one month after the date of acquisition of the dog if the dog was acquired after 31st of March.

Hmmm....does "
castrated"
mean just male dogs or spayed females too I wonder? I'm all for some kind of tax to promote responsible ownership, if that is what this is, though how that would be policed I don't know. On the other hand I don't want to give money away to register two spayed bitches who will never add to the burden of unwanted pups, due to a very expensive operation.

On the other hand.....I would rather pay an unwarrented tax than give my dogs a yellow plastic earring!!!!!

I believe that if you haven't paid the tax when warranted, the owner has to wear the plastic earing!!!

Here in Bulgaria, "
castration"
covers both male and female.
We had Lizzie, our two year old giant schnauzer done last week.

Thanks for that. The girls will be disappointed as I was going to try for pink with bling!

Seriously though, it is a shame that a lot of the older Bulgarians think it is unkind to castrate/spay when there is a service in place for freebies. At least there is some initiative towards stopping unwanted pups, a start at least.

when we brought the twins back from Portugal last year we went to register them as they were to young to be spayed and we were told 3 lev each but as we were going to have them done the same as our other dogs then not to bother paying.
The boys and girls are all spayed so no pups here either Pleased to say we don't have the stray problem here either and most places are so much better now then years ago.
The tag system seems to be working well and people do seem to be more aware of their animals now. I guess there are problems in some areas still but it is getting better.

I agree as well, all about owning a dog is to be a responsible owner.

your dogs should be going to the vets for rabies every year and other injections to ward off parasites. they should be wormed and they should have some thing like frontline each month This is all for their protection.
If you have all that recorded on a vetenary card then it is fine stay with that if not get the vet to fill out one so the dogs have health records. If you think you may travel with your dogs then get a passport all medications injections etc will be recorded in that and the dog will get a chip number injected in to it The animals are registered by the vet.
We had a labradore that was bitten we think by a gnat definately no ticks or fleas. Her internal organs all closed down it was a terrible thing to see i wouldn't like to see any of you go through that. This happened although our dogs are as protected as much as they can be so they have 6 monthly blood tests now to check to see if they have been bitten
all the best Chrissy

we do give the dogs all the above treatments suggested. However as I have bred dogs for many years we get the supplies from the vetenary supply shop and do it ourself rather than taking them to the vet. So i do have records, serial numbers of wormers etc. I have one dog with a passport which i brought to bulgaria but the other three were born here and i have no intention of taking them out of bulgaria so i havent got them a passport. So what i wanted to know is should i be getting them a passport anyway to be covered by the dog tax thing? im sure im being dense but get very confused by the rules.
