Dog and cat registration

Animal registrations are due by 31 August each year.

Due to the COVID–19 pandemic, we encourage
you to renew online instead of visiting a council office.

Renew registration

Visit Dogs and Cats Online to renew registration, register a new animal, complete microchip/desexing records or notify us if the animal moves to a new address, dies or is missing for more than 72 hours. Transferring your dog or cat to a new owner? Transfer ownership online to another person. New owners must be provided with the certificate of registration (renewal notice) and transfer code.
