Over 650 dog and cat owners in our community have taken advantage of new and improved online systems to register their pets from the comfort of their own homes.
Local pet owners are among 12,813 cat and dog owners across NSW who have used the NSW Pet Registry to register their pets since a new and improved website launched in October.
An additional 1556 owners have paid pet registration fees via Service NSW since it was added as a convenient new method in November - 97 per cent of these online.
I urge you all to use the convenient online channels to register your pet.
These new and improved online services are another example of how the NSW Government is making the customer experience the central focus in our delivery of services.
I'm pleased to see the new online services have proven so popular within our local community.
Pet registration fees go straight back into our local community, funding animal shelters, ranger services, dog recreation areas and education and awareness activities in the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council area."
Creating a NSW Pet Registry profile is the easiest way for you to be contacted if your missing pet is found.
The recently added features of the NSW Pet Registry include:
- Upload a photo of your pet - Pet owners and breeders can upload a photo of their pet on the Pet Profile page to help identify and return the animal should it get lost
- Lost and found - If the microchip number of a lost cat or dog is known, a member of the public can use the Registry to send a secure message to the pet owner with their contact details alerting them that they have found their pet
- Search function - Prospective pet owners can use the Registry to find out important information before buying a cat or dog. Using a microchip number, they can access the animal's breed, age, gender and whether or not it is de-sexed.
