Dogs and Cats Online (DACO)

A new online portal will streamline dog and cat management in South Australia, replacing individual council registers from 1 July 2018 – and it’s called DACO (Dogs and Cats Online).

DACO is planned to combine a number of existing registers to act as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for registration details, microchip and breeder information for each pet.

It is anticipated that DACO will:

  • Deliver greater functionality;
  • Make it faster and easier for owners to register their dogs each year, online; and
  • Overall, save councils money.

Specifications for the system are currently being developed in consultation with councils, vets and breeders, with tenders expected to be called early in 2017.
