Dog and Cat Registration

Dog and Cat Registration Details

All dogs and cats are to be registered once they reach three months of age and it is the responsibility of the owner to ensure their dog(s) are registered each year.  

Dogs and Cats Online (DACO)

Dogs and Cats are now registered via a statwide system called Dogs and Cats Online (DACO). 

This system is managed by the Dog and Cat Management Board.

Dogs and cats already registered receive a renewal notice in July each year and the registration fee is due by 31 August.  Payments after 31 August will incur a late payment fee ($15).

Under Council's Cat By-law
