NSW Pet Registry website

Pet owners can now access the new NSW Pet Registry website to update their contact details, report a missing pet, change a pet's ownership, and make a payment for 'lifetime registration'.

The NSW Pet Registry is an online database of microchipped and lifetime registered dogs and cats that life in NSW. All pets previously listed in the Companion Animals Register are now available through the NSW Pet Registry.

Accessing the registry begins with creating your online profile, which you can then use to link the pets that you own. To link a pet to your profile you'll need to know your pet's microchip number and the contact number for the listed owner. If your pet is listed on the Companion Animals Register, you can refer to your pet's certificate of identification/registration for these details.

How to register your pet online

  1. To register your pet online, you must first create a profile on the NSW Pet Registry website. Visit www.petregistry.nsw.gov.au, select "Register" and follow the on-screen instructions to create a profile.
  2. If you've already created a profile, go to www.petregistry.nsw.gov.au, log in to your profile, and select "My Pets".
  3. Select "Pay Online Due" for the relevant pet.
  4. Check the details are correct and select "Pay Now" to continue.
    Note: If your pet has been desexed but is appearing on the website as not being desexed, please contact Council for assistance.
  5. Follow the on screen instructions until your payment is finalised. A receipt will be shown on screen, where you can print it or request to receive a copy by email.
