How do you register your dog or cat?

Regardless of how you register your pet, you are encouraged to create a profile on the NSW Pet Registry. Having a profile and keeping your details up to date helps reunite you and your pet should you they go missing.


Registering your pet has never been easier: 


Online - NSW Pet Registry

The NSW Pet Registry website was launched in July 2016 as part of the Government’s commitment to promoting responsible pet ownership and improved animal welfare outcomes.  

The Registry allows pet owners whose animals have been microchipped to register cats and dog, update their contact details, report missing pets, transfer ownership and pay lifetime registration fees all from a computer or mobile device.


Over the counter - your local council

You can also register your pet over the counter at your local council.

Pet owners seeking to register assistance animals, working dogs or dogs kept for breeding purposes will still need to carry out registration at a local council. Some eligible pensioners will also need to be assessed for eligibility by their local council.


Over the counter and online - Service NSW
Service NSW has been added to the list of registration agents to give pet owners an additional, convenient option to register pets. 

Eligible pet owners can register pets with Service NSW in person at a Service NSW centre or kiosk, or online using your MyServiceNSW account, which will link customers with your NSW Pet Registry account.
