Any change of ownership must be approved by the old owner

Rehoming your Pet/Change of Ownership Online

If you have rehomed a pet privately that is registered on the NZCAR database, then it is the responsibility of the Primary Contact listed in our database to update the contact details to the new owner.

The Primary Contact can update the details online if their email address is registered with us.  Or you can email us, or call us during office hours (Monday to Friday 08:30am - 5pm excluding holidays) to complete the change for you.

There is no charge for updating contact information.


If you have adopted a previously registered pet from the SPCA or your local Council that has been legally rehomed then proof of this will be needed before the record can be altered.
