Transfer your pet registration

Transfer from another council

Council accepts pet registration transfers from another Council in Victoria. Please complete a pet registration form and provide proof of payment from your previous council for the current registration period.

If your pet was registered in another state, you must register it again.

Renew your registration

After you have transferred your registration to Casey, you must renew it each year.

If you are eligible for a reduced fee registration, you must let us know during renewal time. If you do not let us know, you will be charged the full registration fee.
