Registering your pet for life

Making sure your cat or dog is microchipped and registered will help Council return your pet if they ever get lost. 

Registering your cat or dog in NSW is a two-step process.

1. First, ensure your cat or dog is microchipped by 12 weeks of age or before being sold or given away

2. Registering your pet for their lifetime is easy and can be done online through NSW's Pet Registry. Desexed pets are eligible for discounted registration. Your vet can mark your pet's record as desexed so your pet's lifetime registraton fee is discounted.
