Desex your pet

There are great benefits to owning a pet, but it’s also a big responsibility. Desexing is one of the most important things to think about when you get a pet. We highly recommend you desex your pet.

Why should I desex my pet?

The animal population is a significant issue for shelters and pounds across Victoria. Thousands of cats and dogs are euthanased every year, due to an over-supply of pets.

We recommend you desex your pet to:

  • prevent unwanted litters
  • reduce the population of unowned animals, particularly cats
  • reduce the high euthanasia rates of impounded animals
  • reduce the tendency for aggression and roaming

Can I get a registration discount for a desexed pet?

Yes. We offer a discount scheme to encourage you to register your pet. The scheme also aims to encourage the desexing of pets, particularly cats.

To receive a second year free, you must provide the desexing certificate within the first 12 months of registering your new pet.

We also offer reduced fees for trained dogs.
