Annual permits for non-desexed cats and dangerous/restricted dogs

Published on 30 June 2020

From July, the NSW Government is introducing annual permits for non-desexed cats as well as restricted and dangerous dogs.

Owners of cats not desexed by four months of age will be required to pay an $80 annual permit.

Meanwhile, owners of dogs of a restricted breed or formally declared dangerous will be required to pay a $195 annual permit.

Both permit fees are in addition to the one-off lifetime pet registration fee.

There is a 21-day grace period for affected pet owners to comply with the new requirements.

In addition, from 22 July pet owners will be able to pay for annual permits using the NSW Pet Registry website or through the City of Ryde.

Annual permit fees will go directly to the Companion Animals Fund, which pays for companion animal management by local councils.
