Animal registration

To register your pet online, your pet needs to be registered as desexed with the NSW companion animal database. In order to update the NSW companion animal register, residents can visit or email Council, with a copy of your pet's Desexing Certificate and microchip number and we will update the register. Once your pet is updated with the NSW companion animal database, you can register your pet online at petregistry.nsw.gov.au or at service.nsw.gov.au using your MyServiceNSW Account login.
