Dogs and cats should be registered at six months of age on the NSW Pet Register. Some pets may need an annual permit too.
Registering your pet can be done online or in person.
When you register, you'll need:
Your animal’s certificate of identification – which you receive when your pet is microchipped.
Proof of de-sexing, pension card or recognised breeder – if applicable
Different fees apply based on whether your pet is de-sexed, is a breeding animal or a service/assistance animal.
