Transfer a Pet

Pet Transfers

Transfers are ONLY for changes to the Primary Contact on your pet’s AKC Reunite enrollment record. The steps below will guide you through the process, which requires a completed form and a release from the prior Primary Contact. There is a $19.95 charge for a Pet Transfer.

Any other changes to your pet’s record, such as phone number, address, alternate and emergency contacts are considered Record Updates, which are included with your pet’s lifetime enrollment with AKC Reunite. If you simply want to update you records, click here.
