Pet owners given an extension to register cats and dogs
  • Friday 23 April 2010

Sunshine Coast Council has approved a change to the cat and dog registration period that will extend this year’s animal registration deadline to 30 September.

The new annual registration period for cats and dogs will commence on 1 October each year and extend to 30 September the following year.

Previously, pet owners had to renew their registration each year in July.

Pet owners will still receive their annual cat and dog registration renewal notices in the mail. They can expect to receive these in late August or early September.

Community Policy and Programs Councillor Jenny McKay said this change allows council to provide a better service to residents outside of traditionally busy times.
