REGISTERING and microchipping your furry friend are important steps you can take to increase your chances of being reunited with them in the event they run away, get lost or stolen.
If you have a new dog, it must be registered as soon as it reaches six months of age.
If your pet is already registered, its registration has to be renewed each year before 30 June.
The City will send you a renewal notice prior to the expiration of your dog’s registration.
Make sure the renewal fee is paid on time and your dog’s details are updated and accurate.
