First time registrations

First time registration fees are charged pro rata, so your registration fee will be calculated based on how close to renewal you are. If you register online or in person, your fees will be calculated automatically, otherwise  contact Council to find out your pro rata payment.

Unsterilised dog/cat registration (under 6 months old)

For the reduced rate to apply in future years you will need to have your dog/cat desexed and provide the desexing certificate to Council before 10 April. If no certificate is received then registration renewal will be at the full fee. 

Reduced fees

Eligibility criteria for reduced fee on new registrations are that the animal must be desexed, or over 10 years of age, or part of a Domestic Animal Business or applicable organisation (proof must be provided). Organisations include:

  • Australian National Cats Inc
