Registration

All dogs and cats must be registered with Council once they reach three months of age. Cats MUST be desexed (as well as microchipped) and dogs MUST be microchipped before they will be registered in Pyrenees Shire.

Animal Registration Form (PDF, 400 KB)

In 2008 Pyrenees Shire introduced a new style of animal registration identification tag (a metal disc) to replace the former plastic tags. The metal discs issued to animals as of April 2008 are intended for the life time of the particular animal. If a disc is lost a replacement disc can be purchased at the Council Office in Beaufort at a cost of $3.00.

If your pet is already registered, a renewal notice will be posted out to you before your next registration payment falls due. Council Officers conduct periodic inspections throughout the Shire to ensure compliance. Owners who fail to register and microchip their animals risk significant 'On the Spot' Penalties.
