Bass Coast Local News:
Donít Forget to Register your Pet

Less stress with pet registration.

By Portal Admin - 21st April 2019 - Back to News

Losing your beloved pet can be an upsetting and stressful situation for the whole family.

If your pet is registered and microchipped, however, your dog or cat has a much higher chance of being returned to you if it ends up in an animal shelter or vet clinic.

Pet registrations this year are due on 10 April, with renewal notices currently arriving in mailboxes.

Under Victorian law, every cat and dog three months of age and over must be registered with their local council. Pets being registered for the first time must also be microchipped prior to registration.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, said registering your pet is a key part of being a responsible owner.

"No family wants to experience the distress of losing a pet so having your pet microchipped and registered will give you the best chance of being reunited as soon as possible," Cr Tessari said.

"Itís also important to make sure your contact details are kept up-to-date, including your current address and phone number."

For more information on pet registration and responsible pet ownership please contact Councilís Local Laws Team on, or call them on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.

If you have a new pet, you can also chat to our Local Laws Team about what you need to do to register them.

Don't forget to register your pet.
