Animal Businesses

The Domestic Animal Act 1994 requires applications to register a domestic animal business, for pet shops, shelters, pounds, breeding, rearing, training and boarding establishments.

The application fee is $256.

Council officers will inspect the property to ensure compliance with the Code of Practice pursuant to the Domestic Animal Act. You will be contacted to arrange a suitable inspection time.

The registration is renewable annually on 10 April and is not transferable unless the Council is notified in writing at least 30 days prior to the transfer.
