Owners of new dogs will receive a grey registration disc, displaying the permanent registration number, in the post 15 days following payment of their registration.
Annual discs will not be issued. If your dog's registration disc has been lost or damaged, or you do not wish to use the supplied plastic disc, you are encouraged to purchase a metal dog disc, badge or tag from the provider of your choice and have it engraved with your dog’s permanent registration number.
Prior to the introduction of Dogs and Cats Online, thousands of plastic dog registration discs went into landfill. Permanent registration numbers will provide significant environmental benefits by reducing South Australia’s landfill waste by 600kg per year.
To assist in the return of your lost dog please ensure the permanent registration number is legible and the disc, badge, tag or other device is securely attached to your dog’s collar. You also are encouraged to include name and phone number or any other contact details.
If you would prefer to have a plastic disc, you can request a replacement disc on Dogs and Cats Online at any time.
