Each council sets their own dog registration fees and other associated fees for dog and cat management. You can significantly reduce your annual dog registration fee by desexing and microchipping your dog.
Dog registration fee income is only expended on the management of dogs within the council, contributing towards dog exercise areas and facilities, promotion of responsible dog ownership, community education, and dog management officers who work to ensure community safety and much more. For more information about your council’s dog facilities and events, please contact your local council.
Life-time dog registration is not available in South Australia. South Australian dogs are required to be registered each year by the 31st August.
