New laws for cat and dog owners and breeders have been introduced in South Australia. The improved dog and cat management and welfare system follows planning and public consultation by the Dog and Cat Management Board and the State Government.
All dogs and cats born after 1 July, 2018, must be desexed by a certain age (unless exempted under the Dog and Cat Management Act).
From 1 July, 2018, it is compulsory for all dogs and cats to be microchipped, including existing dogs and cats.
If your dog is microchipped before renewing your 2017/18 registration, provide the City of Playford with the relevant information and you will be eligible for the additional rebate upon your animal’s registration.
