Cat and dog registrations

All cats and dogs in Nillumbik over three months of age must be registered. Your pet registration covers a one year period and must be renewed each year.

Pet registrations are different to animal permits. As well as registering your dog or cat, you may also require a permit if you want to keep more than two cats or more than two dogs.


You can keep other animals in Nillumbik without a registration, however you may require a permit depending on the type and number of animals, and the size of your property. Find out more here.
