A lifetime tag and registration number will be posted following acceptance of an on-line registration application.
Unless specific exemptions apply, the life time tag must be worn on the pet's collar when not confined to the owner’s property. Lost or damaged tags can be replaced by request at one of Council’s offices or by phoning Customer Service on 1300 656 564.
If you have recently relocated to the Moyne Shire and your dog or cat is currently registered with another municipality, you must still register with the Moyne Shire. Moyne Shire will transfer a valid registration from another municipality free of charge.
If your pet is currently registered in Moyne Shire Council and has passed away, is no longer in your care or if you are moving to a new address you will need to inform us. You can do this using this form.
Once registered, you will be sent a Registration Renewal in March each year. Animal registrations must be renewed by 10 April each year.

If a dog or cat that has been registered for the full year dies within six months of the commencement of the registration year, the owner is entitled to a refund of one-half the registration fee paid.
