Clarification needed on dog licence renewal

I refer to the news item ‘Owners urged to register pets’ published in the Borneo Bulletin on January 17.

I would like to thank the Ministry of Home Affairs for reminding dog owners on the need to register their pets before February.

I was recently given a form to complete at home but made no payments. I was told to put down my name, contact details and area of residence instead.

The officer at the Municipal Department counter told me that they would contact me once badges are available as it is out of stock.

I would like to ask the authorities whether this counts as a renewal of the dog licence?

If not, can the authorities please advise on what to do?
