We encourage everyone in Yarra to be responsible pet owners.
Being a responsible pet owner involves registering, microchipping, desexing and vaccinating your dog or cat, having control of your pet in public and obeying dog on-leash and off-leash areas.
Your pet registration renewal is due on 10 April each year. This is a requirement under the Domestic Animals Act 1994. You will receive your notification via mail in mid-March.
We wanted to keep you updated on all the important information regarding you pets. Please take the time to read this factsheet.
If anything has changed in relation to your pet, please contact us as soon as possible .
Taking care of our animals in the summer months
Please watch the Just six minutes video to understand the seriousness of leaving animals in a hot car.
If you find a pet left in a hot car, please call Victoria Police on 000. The police are equipped to dispatch officers quickly from the nearest police station, which is critical under these circumstances.
Reporting concerns about animal welfare
We encourage you to report any concerns about animals on a property without adequate water, shelter, food or veterinary treatment to the RSPCA or call 03 9224 2222.
