Animal registration renewal

Registration renewal requirements

All dog and cat registrations must be renewed by 10 April each year. This date is set for all Councils under the Domestic Animals Act 1994.

Owners are responsible for renewing their pet's registration each year. Council sends owners an animal registration renewal notice in the mail. It is important you notify Council if you need to change your pet registration details.

Once Council receives your payment, your pet is registered for another year.

You may be fined if your cat or dog is over 3 months old and is not registered. You can register your pet online through the Council site.
