Due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place, Northern Grampians Shire Council offices have closed doors until further notice. If you wish to register your animal with Northern Grampians Shire, please complete the New Registration Form below.
Please note: This form is for new animal registrations only. If you wish to pay your animal registration fee, please call 03 5358 8700 for assistance.
All cats and dogs from 12 weeks of age need to be registered and permanently implanted with a microchip. Once registered, the council issued registration tag should be attached to the animal's collar and remain on your dog or cat at all times.
Each April you will receive a renewal notice for your pet's registration. If you would like to receive your renewal notice via email, please ensure council has your correct email address. Fees can be paid at council's customer service centres.
A reduced fee applies to animals that are sterilised and microchipped, VCA or FCC registered, or over 10 years old and carrying an identifying microchip.
The 'onus of proof' of any of the above is on the applicant. Documentation, for example, written proof of sterilisation, should be forwarded to support the application.
If the animal's details have changed from the description on the registration notice or is deceased, please notify council and forward the appropriate supporting documents.
