The Companion Animals Act and Lifetime Registration. 

If you are the owner of a dog (working dogs exempt) or a cat born after June 1999 then you must have your animal microchipped and registered.

This is a two step process with microchipping carried out by your local veterinarian and then registration at the nearest Council Office. Once your animal is registered, if lost, it can be identified anywhere in NSW through the Companion Animals Register.

Registration fees are a one off fee and as at 1 July 2014 were:

- Desexed cat or dog $51

- Non-desexed cat or dog $188

- Breeder $51

- Desexed animal owned by an eligible pensioner $20
