Dog and cat owners are reminded that annual pet registrations and renewals are due by Tuesday 31 October.
All dogs aged over three months must be registered and microchipped and all cats aged over six months must be registered, sterilised and microchipped under State Government legislation.
City of Gosnells Mayor Terresa Lynes said pet registration was an important part of responsible pet ownership.
“Not only is registering your pet part of being a responsible community member, it helps hugely with the safe return of your furry friends if they become lost,” she said.
“Pets are an important part of many families and lost pets that have been registered and microchipped are much more likely to be reunited with their owners quickly.”
Pets can be registered for one year, three years or for their life, with many residents opting for life-time registration to save time and money.
Mayor Lynes said the call for annual registrations was also a good reminder to check if your contact details were current.
“Remember to update your details with the City if you move house or change your phone number so we have the correct details on record,” she said.
Fines can be issued to owners who don’t register their pets.
New pet registrations and renewals can be completed online, by visiting gosnells.wa.gov.au or call 9397 3000.
