Registration renewals

Council issues a renewal notice each year for each registered cat and dog. The annual registration period is from 1 October to 30 September the following year.

Dog registrations must be renewed annually as per the Animal Management (Cats & Dogs) Act 2008 Queensland. Cat registrations must be renewed annually as per the Sunshine Coast Local Law No. 2 (Animal Management) 2011.

The registration and renewal year for dog and cat registrations starts 1 October and expires 30 September annually.

Council issues a renewal notice in early September for each registered cat and dog requiring annual renewal. Payments are due by 30 September.

There are a number of ways to pay your registration renewal:

  • Go to MyCouncil to pay your cat or dog registration renewal using Visa or MasterCard.
  • Pay using BPay by contacting your bank to make a payment from your cheque, savings or transaction account.
  • Post a cheque or money order to Locked Bag 72, Sunshine Coast Mail Centre, QLD 4560. Include the bottom section of your animal renewal form with animal details.

You will need your reference number and the amount payable.

Refer to your renewal notice for fees. If you require a copy of your notice complete the request for animal registration renewal.

Failure to renew your registration for a cat or dog requiring annual registration may result in an on-the-spot fine being issued.
