Pet registration application

There are three really good reasons why you should register your pet.

  • It improves the chances of your animal being returned to you in the case that it becomes lost.
  • By law, all dogs and cats over the age of three months must be registered. For all new registrations, the animal must be microchipped too. 
  • You may receive a fine for not registering your pet and these fines run into the hundreds of dollars.

General information pet registration

We send out a renewal notice in March to all owners of registered animals within our City. At this time, a new tag is issued which must be attached to the collar of your animal. We encourage all owners to submit a current mobile phone number as we can also out reminders via text message when your animal renewal is due.

In the case that your situation changes, you move house, your animal passes on or if you’ve just lost your animal tag, contact us on 9524 3333.
