In July 2017, Council introduced lifetime tags for registered dogs.
This means the green registration tag you receive when you first register your pet (from 1 July 2017) will remain with your dog for the life of your pet.
Renewal notices will continue to be sent out each year, but you will not receive a new tag or registration certificate upon renewal.
Council issues more than 30,000 tags each year so lifetime registration ensures these tags don't end up in landfill.
If you lose your registration tag you can contact Council by phone on 1300 69 22 47 or email Animal_Management@cairns.qld.gov.au to arrange a replacement. There is no charge for replacing your tag.
