Please bring the completed authorization form to your appointment.
Frozen semen is vital to preserve breeds of the past, access sires from other areas of the world and transfer valuable genetic material without the inconvenience and stress animals may be under during travel. Frozen semen can also be used for genetic testing of dogs no longer with us and serve as an aid in testing for the most desirable genetic traits. It’s also allows a breeder to preserve a dogs’ genetics for potential use in the future, allowing the donor to move into his forever home or even become neutered.
Coming in for a freezing? Please bring the following:
- Authorization to Freeze Semen (filled out and signed)
- Registration papers
- Copy of AKC DNA, if applicable
- Contact information for any parties you authorize access to the sample
Fill out and include this form when you send your semen for use with a specific bitch. This is not to transfer ownership of the semen, but an authorization for it to be used. Be sure to fill out all sections of the form, including information regarding the bitch and her owner, as well as credit card information for payment of the semen preparation, tank rental, shipping and return. The owner of the sire is responsible for the tank return, so please encourage the bitch owner to send it back as soon as possible.
For AKC registration, you will also need to fill out a frozen semen litter registration form.
This form is used when you have decided to release ownership right to any or all of your dog’s frozen semen and grant those right to another party. If the semen remains stored within the Chino Hills Animal Hospital facility, the new owner will be responsible for storage fees and any other fees incurred, such as usage, disposal or shipping.
Sometimes plans change and you may wish to discontinue storing a frozen semen sample in our facility. In order to provide authorization to dispose of any stored samples, this form needs to be filled out completely and mailed or brought to our office. Faxed and emailed copies will not be accepted. Balance of any storage fees must be current before semen can be disposed.
This form is required if you are bringing your male into our facility to collect a fresh chilled sample. If you will be doing the collection at home, please see the next section.
If you will be collecting and shipping yourself, you may purchase a kit from us that includes everything you need. Please purchase the box in advance as the freezer pack included must be frozen for at least 24 hours before the box can be used. If you have not done a collection before or do not have advanced knowledge on how to collect only the semen rich portion of the collection, we do not recommend doing it yourself. We have skilled experts on hand who can assist with your collection and shipping.
