Pet registration

All dogs and cats 3 months of age and over must be registered by 10 April of each year.

Council must not register any new dog or cat unless it has been implanted with a microchip. This includes previously registered dogs and cats from another Council that are now kept within Moira Shire. Further information can be found by reading the Cat and Dog Registration Fact Sheet.

Council will forward a separate dog and cat renewal registration form early in the new year. For new registrations, please complete the application to register domestic animal form and submit to council with any applicable documentation as per the application form.

For further information regarding the State Government Levy please read the Animal Registration Levy Fact Sheet.

To update an existing animal registration please complete the Animal Registration Status Declaration and forward to our office. This includes notifications of deceased animals, animals that no longer live in the shire, moved address and or have a new owner.

Under the provisions of the Domestic Animals Act 1994, Council is required to keep a register of all domestic cats and dogs. This register is available for public inspection, recording and/or certification of particulars.
