It is a legal requirement that all dogs over three months of age are registered. To assist in reuniting lost pets with their owners quickly, dogs must wear both their registration tag and an identification tag at all times. This registration tag should be worn alongside an identification tag that includes your name and address (owner)

PAY DOG REGISTRATION RENEWAL


Please note there was an error in the original Dog Registration Renewal Form sent to dog owners in October 2020.

The cost for a three (3) year registration of a sterilised dog was listed as $20 for full payment and $10 for concession card holders. The correct cost is $42.50 for full payment and $21.25 for concession card holders. All registration fees are legally prescribed by the State Government.

This form is being updated and will be re-sent in a follow up mail out to you. 

Due to a system error some dog registration renewal forms are showing the incorrect breed. We are aware of this issue and your new dog registration renewal form should display your correct dog breed.

To be eligible to breed cats you must be over 18 years of age and have sufficient facilities and a suitable premise to breed cats in a safe and ethical way.

A certificate of approval must be obtained for all Cat Breeders within the City of Canning, for approval applicants are required to adhere to the below requirements and must be a member of one of the following groups;

A copy of written confirmation of member must be provided with Cat Breeder applications.

An individual City of Canning Application for Cat Breeder form must be completed for each cat to be kept at the property - the prescribed fee is $100.00 per cat. Completed Application for Cat Breeder forms and payment can be submitted via email animalregistrations@canning.wa.gov.au or in person at City of Canning Administration Building 1317 Albany Highway Cannington.

  • All unsterilised cats still need to be registered as per the Cat Act 2011 and can only be registered for 1 year, for information on registering cats see above.
  • When a cat is sold or given away, the seller must ensure the cat is microchipped and sterilised prior to transfer. If the cat cannot be sterilised due to its health or age, the seller must issue a prepaid sterilisation voucher to the new owner.
  • Any cat that is transferred (including those under six months) must be micro-chipped and sterilised unless they have a medical exemption. A cat does not have to be sterilised if the seller believes the cat is being transferred to an approved breeder or if a sterilisation voucher is provided. A prepaid voucher for sterilisation is used in the case where a cat is too young to have the procedure performed (before a vet will undertake the procedure).

Breeder’s certificates are valid for 12 months from the date of registration.
