REGISTRATION OF BREEDERS WITH DACO
DOG AND CAT MANAGEMENT (DACO) - BREEDER REGISTRATION 2020-21
From 1 July 2020, all breeder registration fees must be paid directly to Dogs and Cats Online (DACO).
A lifetime DACO breeder number will be allocated on 1 July 2020 to all Governing Council of the Cat Fancy of SA (GCCFSA) members who are registered breeders, and a breeder registration renewal will be sent directly to your members during July 2020.
Members of your organisation who are required to register as a new breeder after 1 July 2020 will do so directly in DACO and confirm their GCCFSA membership number. GCCFSA will be advised of all new members.
The $75 breeder registration fee applies from 1 July to 30 June each year. GCCFSA members only need to register as a breeder in DACO in the financial year that they intend to sell cats they have bred. A DACO breeder registration number applies to one person and is not transferrable.
DACO breeder number and breeder contact details must be included in all advertisements for sale i.e. newspaper, noticeboard, on-line and social media etc. For more information, visit www.dogandcatboard.com.au/buying-or-selling-a-dog-or-cat.
Dogs and Cats Online has been enhanced with improvements to make it easier for breeders to transfer DACO microchip records to new owners and for new owners to complete the microchip record in their name.
The Dog and Cat Management Board have produced some guides and a pamphlet to support these processes, which are available to your members on the Dog and Cat Management Board website at www.dogandcatboard.com.au/breeders-guide/.
GCCFSA membership numbers will be retained in DACO and this will appear with the DACO breeder number when someone performs a breeder search, identifying the breeder as a member of GCCFSA upholding the standards set by your organisation. GCCFSA membership numbers may be entered into more than one DACO owner account, and also serve as an exemption to the desexing requirements.
Before registration renewal notices are issued we will make direct contact with GCCFSA members currently registered in DACO to assist them with the impending changes.
