Share

Under the Domestic Animals Act 1994 animal registrations run from 10 April each year and must be renewed annually.

You can register your animal by completing the Application to Register a Domestic Animal Form.

If your animal registration is current, a Renewal Notice will be sent to your address prior to 10 April each year.

If your animal registration is not current, you must complete the Application to Register a Domestic Animal Form.

If you fail to pay your pets registration renewal by the due date, you may be liable for an infringement notice and:

  • You will no longer be able to pay as a Renewal of Registration
  • A new application to register your animal must be made, including compliance with any new/additional legislative requirements
  • Your animal will be updated in our records system to not renewed/unregistered

To receive your Renewal Notice via email rather than by paper, please Register Online.

Change of Ownership of Animal

If you have sold, given away or purchased an animal to/from someone who resides in Wellington Shire you need to inform Council. You can do this by downloading and completing a Change of Ownership for Animals form. You must complete all sections of the form, including signature of both parties (current owner and new owner).

If you are unable to obtain one parties signature, please contact us for further information.

Change of Ownership Form

Registration Tags

When you register a cat or dog you will be provided with a lifetime registration tag. This means that you will not receive a new registration tag each year. You are still required to pay for your pets annual registration renewal fee.

Your pets Council registration tag must be fastened to your pet's collar when outside your property. If you like to change collars, we recommend putting the tag on a split ring and change as required.

Registration tags assist in returning your pet to you if it becomes lost. Council registration tags are different to tags that may be provided by a microchipping agency.

If you lose or misplace your pets lifetime registration tag, visit our Sale or Yarram Service Centre and a new tag will be issued to you for a small fee.

Victorian legislation states that a dog or cat must be microchipped and registered from 3 months of age.

Microchipping and registration assist in identifying animals and returning them to their owners. Your vet will be able to provide you with information about microchipping your pet and associated costs.

If you have written advice from your vet that your cat or dog’s health would be affected by the implantation of a microchip, you will be exempt from the microchipping requirement.
