If you own a cat or dog in the City of Bayswater, you may have recently received a notice reminding you to renew your pet registration by 30 October.
Not only does registering your pet help the City keep a database of dogs and cats in the area, but registration fees go towards important animal facilities and services like dog parks, ranger services and community education.
It's a State Government requirement that from the age of 6 months for cats and 3 months for dogs your pet must be microchipped and registered. For sterilised pets, registration fees range from $20 for one year, to $100 for lifetime registration.
Registration provides the City with a description of your pet and lists your details as the owner. This helps Rangers reunite lost or injured pets with their owners quickly and easily. It's a small price to pay for peace of mind.
You will find instructions on how to renew your pet registration on your notice. If you are registering your pet for the first time visit the City's website or call Ranger services on 9272 0972.
