What to do if your dog dies

Me aha koe ina mate tō kurī

What you need to let us know

To update our records that your dog has died, we need:

  • your dog’s name and date of death
  • your dog's registration tag or tag number
  • a copy of the veterinary certificate, if you have one
  • a printed bank deposit slip or bank generated document with your name on it, if you want a refund of your dog's registration fee.

Our tip

Refunds are calculated based on the number of full months remaining in the registration year. We count this from the date we receive your request, not from the date the dog died.
