Domestic Animal Business

Under the Domestic Animals Act 1994 it is a requirement that all domestic animal businesses are registered with Council. The registration is for 12 months and is renewable on 9 April each year. The cost of registration is $250.00 per annum and all business owners must comply with the requirements of the relevant code of practice. If first inspection complies then a new DAB Certificate is issued, and no extra monies required.

If a follow-up inspection is needed due to noncompliance, then an extra amount of $100.00 is required as an additional cost due to follow up inspection or inspections.

The definition of a domestic animal business is:

An animal shelter, Council pound or pet shop
An enterprise which is run for profit that undertakes the breeding of dogs or cats
An enterprise which is run for profit that undertakes rearing, training or boarding of dogs or cats.

Any person wishing to register a domestic animal business, may require an Application/Renewal for registration of Domestic Animal Business Form (PDF, 298KB) which is required to be renewed annually.
