Register My Animals

Animal Registration Fees 2020/21 | 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.

As of 11:59pm Wednesday 16 September 2020, Regional Victoria will move into the third step of the COVID-19 Roadmap to Recovery. Read below for an update on the changes to Council’s services.

Unfortunately we are unable to open our libraries, so libraries and customer service centres will remain closed, except that the Nhill office will now be open from 10am to Midday and 2pm to 4pm Monday to Friday without the need to make an appointment, although appointments are encouraged. Only click and collect services will be available at our libraries, for more information on this, click here.

Our parks, playgrounds and skate parks will all be open as of today and people are able to gather (up to 10 people) outdoors.

Halls and the cinema will remain closed as under the third step indoor venues are to be closed.
