All dogs over the age of three months must be registered with the Shire.
All dogs 3 months and over must also be micro-chipped whether previously registered or not.
If your dog becomes lost and is impounded by the Ranger, you have a better chance of finding your dog if it is microchipped, registered and wearing its tag.
How do I register my dog?
To register your dog, you will need to ensure your dog is micro-chipped and complete and sign a registration form. A person under the age of 18 years may not register a dog. Once you have completed the form, please return it to the Shire office with full payment and the micro-chip number, and a dog tag will be sent to you.
All registrations are due on 31 October each year and can be renewed for either one year, three years, or lifetime.
