New and improved online pet registrations gets tails wagging
Thousands of dog and cat owners across the State are taking advantage of new and improved online systems to register their pets from the comfort of their own homes.
Minister for Local Government Shelley Hancock and Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello announced today figures show 12,813 cat and dog owners have used the NSW Pet Registry since a new and improved website was launched in October.
An additional 1556 owners have paid pet registration fees via Service NSW since it was added as a convenient new method in November – 97 per cent of these online.
Mrs Hancock said the figures are extremely encouraging, with pet registration an essential step in looking after our furry best friends.
“Registering your dog or cat is the best way of ensuring you can be reunited with your pet should it go missing. Creating an online pet profile on the NSW Pet Registry and keeping your contact details updated, is the easiest way for you to be contacted if your pet is found,” Mrs Hancock said.
“Pet registration fees go straight back into the community, by funding council animal shelters, ranger services, dog recreation areas, and education and awareness activities.” Read more...
