Have you missed the cat registration renewal deadline?

There are currently more than 85 unregistered cats in the Shire of Dardanup with renewals due on November 1 every year.

That means hundreds of cat owners are risking a $200 fine under the Cat Act if one of our Shire Rangers happens to come across their pet or a complaint is made.

Registration of cats from six months old with your local government is compulsory under the Cat Act 2011 and starts at just $20 for one-year registration.

Cat owners can now complete payments for pet registrations online via our website here.

Registering your cat with your local council means:

  • Positive identification of your cat;
  • Reuniting lost or injured cats with their owners;
  • Investigation and resolution of cat problems; and
  • If our Rangers discover a cat that is unregistered, under the Cat Act they have the authority to be able to issue a $200 infringement on the spot.
