In 2007, Council introduced lifetime tags for pet registration. This initiative means that the tag you receive stays with your pet for life. If the writing on the tag wears off, or the tag becomes lost, contact the Local Laws department for a replacement, or call in to a Customer Service Centre at the Civic Centre or at Stud Park Shopping Centre in Rowville to collect another one.
This tag must be worn by your pet when it is outside your property. If your pet is found without it's tag, you may be fined.
Introducing lifetime tags has many benefits, including no wastage of unused tags at the end of the year, no need for pet owners to cut off the old tag to replace with a new tag each year, savings in the renewal process not having to have tags included in each renewal, and the number on the tags give continuity to the system.
