The City of Greater Dandenong recognises the clear health and social benefits in owning a pet and encourages responsible animal ownership.
Responsible pet ownership means:
- Registering cats and dogs with a Council and making sure they are microchipped.
- Ensuring your pet is vaccinated to protect against disease.
- We also recommend de-sexing your pet.
For more information on each of these topics, please read more below.
Free Desexing for Cats
Greater Dandenong Concession cardholders and people experiencing disadvantage can apply to have their cat desexed for free.
There are limited numbers for this program which will run until September 2023.
Microchipping service by Council
Most veterinary clinics are able to implant microchips. Alternatively, Council's Animal Management Officers can also implant microchips for pension card holders.
