Animal Registrations

Animals play an important role in our community providing companionship and security. Anyone intending to own an animal in Townsville is legally liable and is always responsible for their pets. Visit Be a Responsible Pet Owner for more information.

This page has online payment information for registering a dog for the first time, or renewing either a dog registration or cat approval.

Go to the Animal Registration and Legislation page for information on:

  • how many dogs, cats or other animals you are allowed to have in the Townsville local government area
  • what approvals are required and application forms
  • how to apply for dog registration and animal approvals in person or by post.

For more information on animal fees and charges, please visit Council's Fees and Charges page.
