Pet owners are responsible for making sure that their pets remain healthy, well-socialised and safe, and that their needs are balanced with those of the wider community.
If you sell your dog or give your dog to another person, you will need to complete the pet registration form below so we can update your dog's records.
There are no fees associated with transferring ownership.
Transferring pet ownership
To request a paper version of the form, please phone the City’s Customer Contact Centre on (08) 9205 8555.
If you intend to own more than two dogs aged over three months, you must apply for a permit. You’ll also need approval from all surrounding neighbours and pay a property inspection fee when you submit your application. For more information, please phone our Contact Centre.
Application for two or more dogs
Under the Dog Act 1976 and the Cat Act 2011, local governments are unable to transfer pet registrations until the appropriate form has been completed by both parties, prior to the City transferring the registration.
