Cat and Dog owners will now no longer need to swap their registration tags when renewing their pet registrations. Tags will now only be replaced if they are lost or damaged.
Please note that your tag will not be valid until registration has been paid.
Please check the following registration details for your pet are correct:• Residential or postal address• Telephone number• Email address• Discount eligibility• Microchip number• Has your pet been de-sexed since last registration?• Has your pet passed away or been sold?
These details can be updated by contacting our Customer Service Team on 4913 5000 or by lodging a request using Council's Online Services.
If you no longer have a pet, please contact us to cancel the registration as this will avoid renewal notices being set to you in the future.
Your registration with Livingstone Shire Council will be cancelled if you have left the Council area, and you will need to re-register with the Council in your new area. Remember to notify your microchip provider.
If your pet goes missing you should check Council’s online Lost Pets. While all care is taken to update this register with all of the animals that have been impounded, you should our Customer Service Centre on 4913 5000 or 1300 790 919. If you are still unable to find your animal we suggest you contact local animal groups/agencies. the Capricorn Animal Aid Facebook pages are an excellent resource to help you locate your lost animal. These pages list both lost and found pets in the Rockhampton area. You should also contact the Rockhampton RSPCA on 4921 3339 during business hours in the event they have located your lost pet.
All impounded animals will be held in a Council Pound Facility for a minimum of 72 hours, however after this time animals may be rehomed or euthanised.
While all care is taken at Council’s Pound Facility, your pet has been away from your property and exposed to other animals both prior to and during its impoundment. It is recommended that you consult your vet for advice.
Remember to advise Council and the microchip registry if your contact details change so they can update your records to help make it easier for your pet to be reunited with you if they become lost.
If your pet is impounded, you will be required to pay a pound release fee, in addition the registration fees if it is not currently registered. All such fees are required to be paid before release of the animal. The pound release fee covers the cost of keeping the animal while impounded at a Council Pound Facility.
As a pet owner you are responsible for providing an adequate enclosure to keep the animal on your property, and prevent it from wandering escaping or encroaching onto a neighbours or public place, to ensure the safety of other people, animals and wildlife. Please be aware that a Local Laws Officer may attend your property to assess your enclosure. Compliance notices and penalty infringement notices may also be issued. This applies to both domestic animals and livestock.
Should you have any queries or require further information please contact our Customer Service Centre on 4913 5000 or 1300 790 919.
