Register My Pet

How do I register my cat or dog?

You have to register dogs and cats over the age of three months by 10 April each year. You risk a fine of $370 if you do not register.

Your pet has to be microchipped and needs to carry its tag at all times.

    Register your cat or dog 

    Contact Council to have a registration form mailed to you. 

More than two cats or dogs?

You need to apply for a permit if you want to keep more than two cats or two dogs.
