Pet registration

Registering your pet provides valuable information. It helps the City to plan for animal facilities such as exercise areas, and resolve pet-related issues.

Register your pet

Dogs aged over three months are required to be microchipped and registered.  Cats aged over six months must be registered, microchipped and sterlised.
