Pets and Animals

Pets add another dimension to our lives bringing constant companionship, friendship and unquestioned loyalty and trust.
It is mandatory under the Companion Animals Act that pet owners ensure their cats and dogs are micro-chipped for identification and registered with their local Council. Failing to micro-chip or register a pet can result in a penalty. Animal owners are responsible to ensure pets are healthy, safe and do not create a nuisance in the neighbourhood.
