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

The NSW Government is introducing annual permits for non-desexed cats and restricted and dangerous dogs. 

From 1 July 2020, owners of non-desexed cats older than 4 months will be required to pay an $80 annual permit in addition to the one-off lifetimepet registration fee. Desex your cat now and avoid ever having to pay this fee.

Owners of a restricted breed or formally declared to be dangerous dog will be required to pay a $195 annual permit in addition to their one-off lifetime pet registration fee.
