If you prefer to complete a paper based change of ownership request, please complete a change of ownership form and return to AAR for processing.
The form must be signed by the previous owner and the new owner. If the previous owner's signature cannot be obtained a signed Statutory Declaration with a brief description of how you acquired your pet will need to be completed. Statutory Declarations cannot be accepted if the current registered owner resides in VIC or QLD. In this instance AAR must contact the current registered owner on your behalf. Please allow approximately 4 weeks for the request to be completed.
Note: a processing fee applies for all change of ownerships.
Registered owners must be 18 years of age or older.
