Dogs and Cats Online

New laws for cat and dog owners come into effect on 1 July 2018. These new laws and rules simplified the dog and cat registration process, making it easier to reunite lost pets with their owners, help identify and reduce the occurrence of puppy farms and decrease euthanasia rates.

The most significant change is the registration process for your pet. Dog and cat registrations are now managed through Dogs and Cats Online, a one-stop online service for all annual registration payments, as well as dog and cat microchipping, desexing and breeder details.

Renewal notices will be sent to dog and cat owners by the Dog and Cat Management Board.

The registration process will also see registered dogs issued with a permanent registration number and once-off grey coloured disc. There will be no registration discs for cats.
