If you intend to operate a domestic animal business you must register the premises on which the business is to be conducted.

Businesses requiring this registration include animal shelters, pounds, pet shops or commercial businesses for the rearing, training, boarding or breeding of dogs or cats or other common animals.

This registration is not required by holders of scientific procedure licences.

Service type

Licence

A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.

Eligibility Requirements

You must be over 18 to be defined as the owner of a dog or cat. Owners registering a dog or cat for the first time will not be entitled to the reduced fee for micro-chipping alone, but other reduced fees may be available, including if your animal is desexed. If you require an exemption to desexing your pet, there is now an additional requirement that a veterinarian must personally examine an animal and state in writing why the health of the animal would be harmed if it was desexed.

Please consult the responsible council for more information regarding eligibility requirements.

Ongoing Eligibility Requirements

You will need to abide by all current state and federal legislation relating to animal welfare and any relevant codes of practice.

Please note that all dogs or cats may need separate annual registration with your local council.
