- once we have received confirmation from the vet that the desexing has been completed, we will register your pet and send out the registration certificate to you.
My pet is already desexed, can I still access free registration and microchipping?
Yes you can, all you need to do is provide proof of desexing.
Can I get my pet desexed, but not registered or microchipped?
No, all pets that are desexed must also be registered and microchipped.
Can I get my pet registered and microchipped, but not desexed?
You can access free microchipping at one of our 'Keep track of your best mate' events, but you won't be eligible for free registration unless your pet is desexed.
