Pet Ownership Transfers
In order to complete the transfer we need proof of ownership. One of the following must be provided:
1. The previous owner’s signature on the transfer of ownership form.
2. A bill of sale from the previous owner to you that includes the microchip number.
3. A letter from a licensed veterinarian on their letterhead, stating that you are the owner of the animal. The letter must include the microchip number of your pet.
4. A city or county pet license in conjunction with vaccination records (including microchip number).
We do not accept vet bills as proof of ownership.
A fee of $25.24 plus tax will be charged to transfer the ownership of a pet. Payment methods are: Visa, Visa Debit Card, MasterCard, Cheque or Money Order.
The ownership transfer fee is waived only under the following circumstances:
If you adopted from a shelter or rescue we will require a copy of the adoption contract/agreement in your name and only if the initial registration fee was paid.
If the previous owner is deceased and you can provide either a copy of the death certificate or obituary notice.
Shelters or rescues may send ownership transfer requests on their letterhead.
Please mail, email or fax the paperwork to us.
Please note that the current owner on file can set up an online account here: Pet Owner Sign Up and then complete a transfer of ownership online.Transfer of Ownership Form
