Animal Registrations


All cats and dogs, other than exempt cats and dogs, must be registered by 12 weeks of age.

There are three steps in the registration process.

Step 1. Microchipping

Microchipping is a way to permanently identify your pet. Microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and are inserted in the back of your pet's neck. This is done by your vet and is very safe. The chip contains a series of numbers and no two chips have the same number. The numbers are read by scanners and the unique number will identify your pet through the NSW Pet Register.

Step 2. Registering your pet

After your animal has been microchipped, you need to register them on the NSW Pet Registry.

Step 1: Create a profile on the NSW Pet Registry

Step 2: Link your pet to your profile by searching their microchip number

Step 3: Pay the life time registration fees

Step 3. Desexing/Sterilising Your Pet

Once you pet has been desexed, their registration details will need to be updated (this can be done by your vet or local council).

Dogs: If your dog is not desexed by 6 months of age, an additional fee will be applied.

Cats: If your cat is not desexed by 4 months of age, an annual permit fee will be applied.

If you have a recommendation from your vet that your pet's desexing needs to be delayed, please provide the letter to us at

If you opt to not get your pet desexed, additional fees will apply.

Please note that if your pet was obtained from a registered pound/shelter/rehoming organisation, or you are an eligible pensioner, you will need to pay the registration fees (if applied) through your local council.
