Animal ID Prefix FAQ

 

ANIMAL ID PREFIX SELECTION FORM

 

Q: What is an Animal ID Prefix?

A: An Animal ID Prefix is a combination of letters and numbers that precede the name or ID number of an animal. For example: CRO 15/22 or CRO Big Red

 

Q: How short or long does the Animal ID Prefix need to be?

A: This prefix must be a minimum of two (2) characters and up to a maximum of eight (8) characters (including spaces). Your Animal ID Prefix can only be a combination of letters and/or numbers, symbols or punctuation are NOT allowed. Please remember that animal names are limited to 25? characters, including the Animal ID prefix.

 

Q: Why has the Animal ID Prefix been established?

A: To help recognize and maintain recognition of the original owner of an animal.

 

Q: I have been using an Animal ID Prefix for many years now, do I still need to submit the form?

A: Yes, every member including Lifetime, Annual, Associate, Junior and International MUST complete and return the Animal ID Prefix form to FORMALLY REQUEST their membership’s Animal ID Prefix.

 

Q: Can I submit the form early to ensure that I get the requested Animal ID Prefix?

A: The requests are not done on a first-come, first-serve basis. As long as the BBU office receives your form by January 31, 2020 then your request will be considered on the same parameters as the other forms received on or before January 31, 2020. Animal ID Prefixes will be assigned based on historical use and/or length of continual membership status. They are not assigned based on who sent the form in first.

 

Q: How do I submit the form?

A: Once you receive the letter in the mail, you can submit the completed form by returning it to 118 W. Bandera Road, Boerne, TX 78006. Mail is the preferred return option, but emails and faxes will be accepted. The BBU office must receive the completed form NO LATER THAN JANUARY 31, 2020.

 

Q: What if I miss the deadline or do not request an Animal ID Prefix?

A: If an Animal ID Prefix is not established, then a random prefix will be assigned to the membership account.

 

Q: How does the Animal ID Prefix work when registering an animal?

A: At the time of the animal’s registration, the registry system will automatically prepopulate the animal name with the Animal ID Prefix followed by the animal’s ID number (example: CRO 15/22). At that time of initial entry, you may replace the animal’s ID number in the name field with a name like “Big Red”, but the prefix will always stay at the beginning of the animal’s name (example: CRO Big Red). Please remember that animal names are limited to 25 characters, including the Animal ID prefix. ANY name change after initial entry will incur the appropriate name change fees.

Animal Name Change FAQ

So, you have purchased an animal with no name or you would like to change the name, so what do you do now?

To change a name on an animal, the office must receive written permission from the Breeder-Member-First Owner that is listed on the Certificate of Breeding in order to make the name change. Our rules state, that an animal has a name if there is anything listed in the “Named” section of the certificate, this includes an ID number. The fee to change an animal name for an animal with NO PROGENY is $20. The fee to change an animal name for an animal WITH PROGENY is $100. The best and most efficient way to change the name of an animal is for the member requesting the name change to directly contact the Breeder-Member-First Owner and obtain the written/emailed permission from them. Once the written/emailed permission is obtained, the letter/email can be mailed in along with the certificate for reprint (additional $10 fee) or the email can be forwarded along with payment information to our office staff members for update and billing. No new certificate will be issued unless the old certificate is returned. If the animal was purchased in a sale, the consignor may not be the Breeder-Member-First Owner of the animal. You will need to contact the Breeder-Member-First Owner for written permission to change the name and you will need to provide payment for the name change before it will be done. The BBU staff members will also need to know which sale it was purchased at.

To add a name for an animal with no name listed in the “Named” section of the breeding certificate, please return the certificate with the requested name written in the “Named” section and the office will add the name and reprint the certificate for a $10 fee. There is no fee to add a name to an animal with no previous name, only a fee to reprint the certificate. You can also email a BBU staff member the certificate number of the animal and the name you would like to add. The office will add the name into the system and the new name will print onto a new certificate when the original breeding certificate is returned for transfer or requested reprint.
