Bass Coast,

New pet registration initiatives


As part of the Domestic Animal Management Plan for 2017-2021, Bass Coast Shire Council is introducing a number of initiatives to make it easier and more affordable for residents to register their animal.

Dog owners who have registered their non desexed pet, and then have it desexed within six months of the registration date, may be entitled to a partial refund. The refunded amount will be the difference between the undesexed fee and the desexed fee.

In order to receive the refund, proof that the animal has been desexed must be provided to Council within the six month period.

Council is also offering free first year registration for animals that have been purchased from a recognised rehoming organisation. Proof will need to be provided that the animal has been purchased from a recognised rehoming organisation.

Free registration is offered for the first year of an animal’s registration, after this year animal owners are required to renew their animal’s registration annually.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these new initiatives please contact the Community Safety team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278).
