Animal registration

Every dog and cat over the age of 3 months must be microchipped and registered with Council (State Legislation). This helps keeps your pet safe. In Yarra, cats are required to be desexed as well.

Microchipping doesn’t mean your pet’s registered, you will need to complete a animal registration application, supply supporting documentation and pay the appropriate fee.

Once your pet is registered, you will receive a certificate and we will send a lifetime tag. You will need to ensure that your pet is wearing its tag as the tag means we will be able to contact you if your pet was to escape or get lost.
