Pet registration payments
Payments are now overdue. Notifications are being sent to owners of animals who have not renewed their registration. If you do not pay the renewal you may receive a fine.
Service of subpoenas and other legal documents
Registered post to our postal address will meet the rules of service. If you need to serve Council with a subpoena or other legal documents, you can post them to PO Box 1000 Narre Warren, Victoria 3805.
Council meetings will continue, but members of the public cannot attend at this time.
Avoiding COVID-19 scams
Unfortunately, scammers are taking advantage of the spread of coronavirus. They exploit and play on the fears of consumers across Australia.
- sell fake coronavirus-related products online
- use fake emails or text messages to try and get personal data
- send phishing emails and phone calls impersonating:
- the World Health Organisation
- government authorities
- legitimate businesses — including travel agents and telecommunications companies
Many households have seen lockdown as an opportunity to introduce a pet into the family. Council urges its residents to be cautious when buying a pet. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has reported an enormous spike in puppy scams during the pandemic.
