               Application for Transfer of Ownership        

This form may be used for any of the Registries run by the American Donkey and Mule Society
The Miniature Donkey Registry, The American Donkey Registry, The American Mule Registry, The American Mule Racing Registry, The Zebra Hybrid & Bloodstock Registry.  If you are double-registering an animal from
any other registry, this is not the correct form.  Call the office for additional instructions, or refer to the Registry Booklet. If the animal is not yet registered with ADMS it is not a transfer!

Please make sure you read the following instructions carefully.  If information is incorrect or incomplete, your transfer may be delayed. To Transfer Ownership of an ADMS registered animal, please send ALL of  the following:

1. The Original Certificate of Registration (please keep a photocopy for yourself as things can get lost en route).  Please do not fold certificates. (Please note that if an animal has NEVER been registered, this form is not needed UNLESS you are registering to owner #1 and transferring to Owner #2 at the SAME TIME.)
2. This completed Transfer Form.
3. Any additional Information and Photos for animal. (Such as updated height!) *SEE BELOW
           $7.00 Transfer fee if  THIS IS A MATURE ANIMAL and you wish to have the certificate reissued with the transfer information , ie your name in the owner field, and transfer information/previous owner listed in the TRANSFER FIELD. ) (for MATURE ANIMALS ONLY - immature animals will NOT BE DONE with a reissue) 
          $5.00 transfer fee.  IF THIS IS AN IMMATURE ANIMAL OR you wish your Transfer endorsed but certificate NOT REISSUED   (A transfer endorsement sticker placed in the transfer field on the same certificate, which is the way the majority of Horse registries handle transfers) All Immature Transfers for ADMS are done this way only.  (You may  also do this on animals to be sold again right away.  If you send this form with both prices shown and only $5.00 we will do as a sticker transfer and NOT reissue the papers)

Mature animals are over age 3 if miniature, over age 4 or 5 if mules or Mammoths.   ANY ANIMAL UNDER THE AGE of THREE will have their transfers processed as IMMATURES. 
* If the animal was registered as immature and is now past its third birthday (not before age four for Mammoths, Mules and Zebra Hybrids) please take the time to update the animal at this point. There is no additional fee to update the papers at the same time you do the transfer! ($7 transfer fee ONLY  applies) .  What is needed is the height (from ground to withers, using a measuring stick, in increments of ") and recent photos of the mature animal (side views, one of each side showing any markings clearly). This will save extra trouble, time and fees.
