Cat and Dog Registrations


All dogs need to be registered from the age of 3 months.

From the 1st November 2013 new laws were passed that now require all dogs are to be micro-chipped as well as registered. When your dog is micro-chipped, you need to advise the Shire of the number and provide a copy of the documentation if possible.

The limit on the number of dogs which may be kept on any premises is

  • 2 dogs over the age of 3 months and the young of those dogs under that age if the premises are situated within a townsite; or
  • 4 dogs over the age of 3 months and the young of those dogs under that age if the premises are situated outside a townsite.


From 1st November 2013, all domestic cats over 6 months of age must be registered with your local government, and must be micro-chipped and desexed. To help identify an owned cat, it needs to wear a collar and registration tag.

When registering your cat, make sure you have their micro-chip and sterilisation certificates.
