Cats and Dogs - Home

Cats, dogs and the law

The Companion Animals Act 1998 and the Companion Animals Regulation 2008 provide for the identification and registration of cats and dogs, how they are managed and the duties and responsibilities of their owners in NSW.

Cats, dogs and local councils

Local councils administer and enforce this legislation, as well as update registration information on the NSW Companion Animals Register. Contact your local council if you have any questions about cats, dogs and the law, or to update your cat or dog's contact details on the Register.
