Dog and Cat Registrations

The Companion Animals Regulations 2018 became effective on 31 August, 2018. This Regulation repeals and replaces the Companion Animals Regulation 2008. Cats and dogs have to be registered under the Companion Animals Act, 1998 (there are exceptions).

In accordance with sections 9 (2) and 10 of the Act, a companion animal is required to be registered.

The new fee structure set down by the State Government is as follows:

  • $210 for an entire cat or dog (that is, not desexed)
  • $58 for desexed dog or cat (sterilisation certificate required)
  • $25 for eligible pensioners, only if the dog or cat is desexed (pension card and sterilisation certificate required)
  • $58 for an animal that is not desexed and kept by a recognised breeder for breeding purposes (Current RNSWCC membership, pedigree certificate and letter stating the animal will be kept for breeding purposes is required)
  • $29 for a desexed animal purchased from a Council pound, animal shelter, or rehoming organisation with a Clause 16 (d) after 30/10/15 (adoption paperwork and sterilization certificate required)

Commencing 1 July, 2019 Annual permits will be required for certain companion animals. For the purposes of section 11N (d) of the Act, an annual fee will be required to be paid for the issue of a permit
(a) $80, in the case of a cat that is not desexed
(b) $195, in the case of a dangerous dog
(c) $195, in the case of a restricted dog
