Services we offer
The City of Marion promotes and supports responsible dog ownership.
It is important to register your dog each year so if it becomes lost, we can contact you to reunite you with your pet.
All dogs three months or older are required by law to be registered with their local Council within two weeks of ownership.
New dog registrations require a dog registration application form which is available
You will need to bring photo identification and any concession cards at the time of registration. You will also need to provide copies of desexing, microchipping and certified training certificates if you wish to claim a dog registration discount.
