Animal Registration Fees 2019/20 | Pay My Animal Registration
Dogs and cats over the age of 3 months must be microchipped and registered with Council. All registered animals will receive a Council tag that allows us to return them home quickly if they become lost.
All new animal registrations must include a microchip number and must be completed in person at any of our Customer Service Centres.
If the animal being registered is desexed, veterinary proof is required.
Animal registrations are due on 10 April each year. If dog or cat owners fail to register their furry friend, they may be liable for an on-the-spot fine of up to $330.
If your pet has lost or destroyed its registration tag, a new one can be purchased at any Shire office for $11.00.
There is a 50% reduction in registration fees on presentation of your pension card.
