Being a pet owner is extremely rewarding, but it is also a big responsibility. As well as caring for a companion animal, owners are responsible for their pet’s behaviour and registration.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it cheaper to register dogs and cats if they are desexed?
Yes. All pet owners are encouraged to desex their pets prior to registration to take advantage of the significant registration discounts offered for desexed animals.
How can I register my pet with Council?
To register your animal with Wollongong City Council you require the following:
- microchipping paperwork - preferably a certificate of identification issued by Council
- proof of desexed animal (if applicable) - preferably a certificate of sterilisation or documentation
- If the above is unavailable: a Statutory Declaration with animals chip number and owners information witnessed by a Justice of the Peace.
Registration can only be done at the Wollongong City Council Cashiers or the RSPCA. Registration cannot be paid with credit over the phone. However, you can send the information by mail with a cheque or money order.
