For pet owners

There can be a lot in joy in owning a pet. However, there are also responsibilities to consider when caring and looking after your pet. This page contains information about pet registration, microchipping and tips for choosing a pet to suit your home and family. There is also information about what to do if your animal is lost or if you find an animal, how to manage your dog’s barking, keeping chickens in your backyard, and what you can do if you are impacted by someone else’s pet.
