Animal registration renewals

  • New pets registered from 20/02/2017 will be registered for the 2017-2018 registration period. The expiry date for the registration will be 10 April 2018, and registration must be renewed by the 10th of April each year for the life of your pet.
  • Animal registration renewal forms are mailed to registered pet owners in late February - early March.
  • If paying a pet registration renewal as a result of a Council doorknock, pet owners will have to pay for registration of the registration period not paid for in addition to the registration fee for the 2017-2018 registration period (half yearly fees do not apply).
