It’s time to register your pet

Happy Jack Russell dog sniffing the air.

Monday 18 March 2019

It’s that time of year when we show our pets that we love them by making sure they are registered.

Annual pet registrations in Mount Alexander Shire are due by Wednesday 10 April. They start at $23.

By registering your furry friend you can rest assured that if they go missing the animal welfare centre or vet can use your pet’s microchip and registration details to reunite you.

They’ll be back in your arms in no time!

Along with a speedy reunification with your missing pet, your registration also helps to support the local animal welfare centre and helps our Animal Management Team act on dog attacks, investigate nuisance animals, capture roaming livestock and much more.

If your pet is already registered you’ll soon receive a renewal letter with payment details in the post. Make sure you check your contact details are up to date.

If you have a new furry addition to your household or you’re new to the shire you’ll need to complete an animal registration form and provide proof of your pet’s microchip. You may be eligible for a registration discount.

You are eligible for reduced registration fees if your pet is:
• De-sexed
• Over 10 years of age
• Kept for working stock
• Kept for breeding by the proprietor of a registered animal business, or
• Has an obedience certificate issued by a government approved organisation.

Healthcare card holders, pensioners and Department of Veterans Affairs Gold Cards (for TPI War pensioners and War Widows) are also eligible for a Council subsidy to make it more affordable to de-sex your pet.

All cats and dogs over the age of three months must be registered and microchipped. If you have any questions please get in touch with Council’s Animal Management Team on 5471 1700.

Fees and forms are available on Council’s website at www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/dog_and_cat_registrations or you can pop into the Civic Centre.
