Pet registration door knocking campaign by Regi-check ambassadors to commence in Baw Baw Shire

Regi-Check ambassadors will conduct a door knocking campaign on behalf of Baw Baw Shire Council to assist residents with their pet registration needs.

By news@gippsland - 20th May 2022 - Back to News

Commencing Monday 23 May, trained and licenced ambassadors will be travelling throughout the Shire providing advice and information on the importance of registering domestic animals. The ambassadors will not be accepting money or organising registrations on the spot, rather they will advise residents of the process of registration via council's animal information website.

All cats and dogs over the age of 3 months are required to be registered with council and must be microchipped as per state government regulations

Ensuring pet registration

It is important to ensure pet registration details are up to date with current contact details, and that your pet is always wearing a registration tag so that when an animal is found lost or roaming away from their home council's compliance team can attempt to return them to their owner.

Residents who have not yet received their animal registration notice are encouraged to contact council on 5624 2411. To register your domestic animal, please go to Application to Register Domestic Animal page.

Mayor Cr Michael Leaney said, "Rupert is the newest member of our family and just like his older sibling Tilly, we will be registering him once he is 3 months old to ensure he can be safely returned home should he ever escape! With Regi-Check ambassadors travelling throughout the Shire this is timely reminder to make sure all your pet registration details are up to date."
