By logging in from the pet registry homepage, you will now be able to register your pet with council online or update the status of your pet in the future (e.g. change your pet to ‘missing’ if they are lost). 

Please note that council registration is considerably cheaper once your pet is desexed. You may wait until they are 6 months old to have him/her desexed before you must register with council. 
 
NB: If you do not have access to the internet or need assistance in completing these steps, please contact or go into your local council and they can help you with any enquiries.
