Dog and cat owners will soon receive registration renewal notices. The renewals will be managed through the State-wide portal, www.dogsandcatsonline.com.au
Dogs and Cats Online is a one-stop online service for all annual registration payments, as well as dog and cat microchipping, desexing and breeder details. It was introduced in 2018 to streamline pet registration and information across South Australia.
The registration renewal notices will be sent to pet owners by post, email or SMS, depending on the option chosen when setting up your pets profile last year.
City of Victor Harbor pet owners will receive their notices the week beginning July 1. The notices will include instructions on how to manage your pet's information and pay the annual registration fee.
Last year to support the transition to the new online system the City of Victor Harbor provided support to residents that wanted assistance or didn't have access to the internet. It will be providing the same support this year, with residents able to attend the City of Victor Harbor Library with their renewal notice to get assistance completing their registration online.
As well as using the online portal to finalise registrations, residents can still come into the Council Office and make cash payments at the customer service counter. Dog and cat registrations are due by August 31.
The Friends of the Victor Harbor Dog Park are a group who support and encourage the use of the park and can be found on Facebook. "It is a great dog park and we encourage every dog owner to try it out," spokesperson said.
