In New South Wales, all cats and dogs, other than exempt cats and dogs, must be registered by six months of age. This one-off registration fee covers the cat or dog for its lifetime in NSW, regardless of any changes in ownership. Owners are encouraged to desex their animals, and a reduced fee applies to desexed animal registrations.
Change of owner
If you sell or give your pet to a new owner, you need to lodge a completed Change of Owner form or update the owner details online.
