Cat and dog registration renewals

Council will issue renewal notices for cat and dog registration in early September, with a payment due date of 30 September 2021. Registration renewals which are not paid by this date will lapse and the animal will be unregistered. This may result in an infringement notice being issued.

If no changes are required to your pet's renewal, you can make a payment online. Ensure that you have your renewal notice handy.
