TAILS WAGGING WITH NEW AND IMPROVED ONLINE PET REGISTRATION SERVICE
Almost 400 dog and cat owners in the region have taken advantage of new and improved online systems to register their pets from the comfort of their own homes.
Member for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson said local pet owners are among 12,813 cat and dog owners across NSW who have used the NSW Pet Registry to register their pets since a new and improved website launched in October.
“This new and improved online service is another example of how the NSW Government is making the customer experience the central focus in our delivery of services.
“Service NSW is doing a fantastic job in our region and I’m pleased to see the new online services have proven so popular within our local community.
“Pet registration fees go straight back into our local community, funding animal shelters, ranger services, dog recreation areas and education and awareness activities in the area.
“Creating a NSW Pet Registry profile is the easiest way for you to be contacted if your missing pet is found.
“People can use their MyServiceNSW account from any computer or mobile device or visit their nearest Service NSW Centre with their cat or dog’s microchip number to pay their pet registration fee.
“We are making life easier for our communities by linking more and more transactions to the MyServiceNSW Account. The pet registry is a great example of how we are helping people to save time and money by delivering more digital service options,” Mr Anderson concluded.
The recently added features of the NSW Pet Registry include:
• Upload a photo of your pet - Pet owners and breeders can upload a photo of their pet on the Pet Profile page to help identify and return the animal should it get lost
• Lost and found - If the microchip number of a lost cat or dog is known, a member of the public can use the Registry to send a secure message to the pet owner with their contact details alerting them that they have found their pet
• Search function - Prospective pet owners can use the Registry to find out important information before buying a cat or dog. Using a microchip number, they can access the animal’s breed, age, gender and whether or not it is de-sexed
• Create/add a litter - Breeders can create a litter and add offspring to their online pet profile, making it easier for vets to update animal records.
