We are often asked questions about dog and cat registration and Local Government regulations regarding pet ownership. Here is some information and links that may answer some of these questions.

All cats must be registered annually with the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and wear a council-issued registration tag when in public. This will assist council to identify and reunite cats with their owners should they become separated.
