All dogs and cats living in Strathbogie Shire must be microchipped and then registered with council by the age of three months. Dog and cat registration renewals are due on 10 April each year and renewal notices are sent out in March. This date is set by the State Government’s Domestic Animals Act 1994. Contact Council if you haven’t received your renewal notice by 1 April or if your pet’s details are incorrect on the notice. To help us keep our records up to date, please advise us of any status changes such as address, transfer of ownership, or deceased animals.
To register your pet, complete one of the following steps:
- Fill out our online application form
- Download and print a hardcopy application form
- For further information and assistance, you can phone our Customer Service Team on 1800 065 993
Registering your dog or cat greatly improves the chances of your animal being returned to you if it becomes lost.
Registration fees also provide a whole range of other important services including a Council identification tag which must be worn by your pet.
