Guia do RGA

What is the RGA

By law, all dogs and cats found on the streets should be seized. If the animal is properly registered and identified with the plate, the owner is easily found and called to remove it.

Who needs the RGA

In São Paulo, the RGA is required for dogs and cats. The animals should remove the RGA between three and six months old. Upon registration, they also receive a rabies vaccine, if you have not taken.

You should go armed with your ID number, proof of residence and certificate of vaccination issued and signed by a veterinarian or by the Municipality of São Paulo, issued no more than 12 months before the AGM.

      1. Church activities
      2. Find a senior and have her help you do something nice for them.
      3. Make items for kids in shelters (e.g. bags filled with items from the dollar store).
