  • You change your address or contact details;
  • You sell or give the animal away (note: As the 'old' owner you have the responsibility of sending the completed form to any local Council within 14 days of selling or giving the animal away);
  • The animal dies; and/or
  • The animal has been missing for more than 72 hours.
