Animal registration

In Queensland, registration of all dogs is mandatory. A permit is required to keep more than two dogs or more than two cats on one property.

Cat registration is no longer applicable in our region due to the state repealing the requirement, however the mandatory microchipping will still apply and also approvals to keep more than 2 cats on any property throughout our region will still apply. Cats can still be impounded, a release charge of $121 will apply.

  • Print and complete the dog registration form.
  • Make copies of related documentation, ie. microchipping and desexing certificates, etc.
