Register your pet for free

Talitha WolfeAlbany Advertiser

Cat and dog owners who are yet to register their pets can take advantage of free registration this Saturday.

The registration will be available at the City of Albany North Road offices from 9am-1pm.

Pet owners will need to present their microchipping paperwork to ranger staff to register their dog or cat.

Microchipping will also be av-ailable on the day, but a fee will apply.

The free registration will be valid until the end of October.

Rangers team leader Colin Hyde encouraged the community to jump on board to be responsible pet owners.

“Registering and microchipping your pet ensures that if your dog or cat happens to run away, our ranger team or a vet can quickly and easily reunite you with your pet,” he said.

Cats must be sterilised before they can be registered and proof of sterilisation must be provided by owners.

The City will host another registration day on April 8.
