NSW Pet Registry

Councils play a significant role in promoting and overseeing responsible ownership of dogs and cats in their local area.

The NSW Pet Registry is available for cat and dog owners to update their contact details, report their pet missing, transfer ownership and pay most lifetime registration fees online. The NSW Pet Registry can be found at www.petregistry.nsw.gov.au

Council users should continue to use the NSW Pet Registry – Council Portal at: www.petregistry.nsw.gov.au/car


NSW Pet Registry Upgrade

The Office of Local Government and Department of Customer Service are working together on a major upgrade of the NSW Pet Registry.

The new pet registry will be a state-of-the-art user-friendly portal, allowing instant transfers of ownership and making it easier for vets, owners and rehoming organisations to ensure animal details are up to date.

A pilot program involving up to 10 breeders and 50 new pet owners is currently underway and will run until June.

The first phase of the new Pet Registry is expected to be rolled out across the state from the end of 2023.
