We are prioritising critical services and some services may be reduced. This means there will be longer wait times for customers contacting us by phone. Many of our services are available online. Advice on which services can continue is changing rapidly. For regular updates, go to

Animals and Pets

Council provides useful information about keeping your animals, registration requirements and how we can help if you lose your pet.

During an emergency, our Community Laws team main priority will be responding to the emergency events. Any calls received for animals and pets will be prioritised and acted upon, however please be aware that there may be delays in dealing with your request. Your understanding during these times are greatly appreciated.

Don't forget to renew your dog and cat registrations by 10 April each year or you may receive a fine.
