New Dog and Cat Reforms

New legislation changes introduced from 1 July 2018 has changed the way dog owners register their dogs in South Australia with the introduction of Dogs and Cats Online, a central database for microchipped and registered dogs and cats, breeder registration and registration payments.  These new laws are designed to simplify the dog registration process, make it easier to reunite lost dogs with their owners, and help identify and put a stop to puppy farms and reduce euthanasia rates. 

Users and owners have 24/7 access to the online database.

Microchipping

As of 1 July 2018, all dogs must be microchipped with the details entered onto Dogs and Cats Online.  There are no fees for doing this. 

If you are an owner of a dog that has been microchipped prior to the 1 July 2018 you are responsible for entering the dog’s microchip number into Dogs and Cats Online.  A Vet or microchip implanter who implants a microchip in a dog born after the 1 July 2018 will be able to enter the microchip information into the online system on your behalf.

All dogs must be microchipped by 12 weeks of age or at the point of sale (whichever occurs first).

Visit dogandcatboard.com.au if you would like to find out about the benefits of microchipping, the microchipping process and/or microchipping older dogs. 

More information can also be found at gooddogsa.com/desexing-and-microchipping.

Desexing

If you are an owner of a dog born after the 1 July 2018 you must have your dog desexed by a registered veterinary surgeon:

  • Before it is 6 months of age; or
  • Within 28 days after you take ownership of the dog; or
  • If you as the owner of the dog is granted an extension of time, before the day specified in the exemption.

Visit dogandcatboard.com.au for desexing exemptions, the benefits and process of desexing your dog. 

More information can be found at gooddogsa.com/desexing-and-microchipping.

Breeders

If you are breeder and seller of dogs you must be registered with the Dog and Cat Management Board via Dogs and Cats Online if not a registered breeder with Dogs SA.

If you are a breeder and seller, any advertisement you place for the sale of a dog must include your name and telephone number, breeder name and telephone number and the breeder’s registration number if they were registered.  Sellers must provide the new owner (buyer) with the following information outlined at www.dogandcatboard.com.au/breeders-sale-of-dogs-and-cats.
