Animal registrations due by 10 April

Pet owners are reminded that animal registration payments are due on Friday 10 April.

Animal registration is required under the Domestic Animals Act 1994 and all dogs and cats over three months of age must be registered with Council and microchipped.

Registering a dog or cat greatly improved the chances of it being returned if it became lost.                                                                 

Residents can pay their animal registration via:

  • BPay – online or by telephone
  • Mail – cheques can be mailed to PO Box 194, Maryborough, 3465
