Pet registrations may be transferred from another municipality, free of charge, providing the animal is microchipped and proof of payment is provided.

Please ensure that your animal is wearing a registration tag at all times to assist in immediate identification and return.

Please note that Council registration is separate to microchipping. It is a legal requirement to register your cat or dog with the Council.

Registration Tag if you miss placed or need a replacement animal registration tag please call into one of  Council's Customer Service Centres.

Microchipping Your Pet

It is a State Government requirement that all pets are microchipped prior to registration. This only applies to new pet registrations.

To get your pet microchipped, please contact your local vet.
