Once your cat is registered with the Shire, you will be issued a registration certificate, as well as a valid registration tag which your cat is required to wear on its collar. Cat registration tags change in colour each year.
It is an offence for your cat to not wear a collar with the registration tag and you can be given an on-the-spot fine of $200 for failure to do so.
What concessions or assistance is available for pensioners or low income earners?
The State Government has provided funding to assist and provide low cost sterilisation for cats owned by pensioners and people on low incomes. Pensioners will also receive a discount on registration fees.
