Chip N' Check Program


Never lose your cute pooch or fine feline again! Microchip, desex and register them. 

FREE microchipping days 

In June this year Council offered the community the chance to have their cat or dog microchipped for free. Thank you to all the pet owners who came along to meet our rangers and have their pet microchipped. 
Desexing vouchers
Until September 30 2017, Council is offering $50 desexing voucher to local cat and dog owners to use at participating veterinaries. Vouchers can be collected from our Customer Service Centre at 40 Cherry Street, Ballina. Please note, you will need identification with proof of your Ballina Shire address.

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.
