There may be occasions where an animal is adopted but cannot be licensed/registered immediately (e.g. puppies/kittens sold via off-site pet shops may be too young for pre-requisites). For this scenario, we offer "future licensing".
Future licensing allows you to set up the license/registration that the pet will need once it becomes eligible and acts as a reminder to the new owner to ensure the pet is licensed/registered as appropriate.
NOTE: Future Licensing is only available to External Issuers.
When setting up your External Issuer, remember to mark them "Yes" for "Is issuing future licenses".
Issuing a Future License:
- From the Welcome/Search Page, search for the Person who wishes to license the animal.
- If not found, create a record for them now.
- Scroll to the Person Categories at the bottom of the Person Details Page.
- Locate and click on the link License or Registration as per your site's settings.
- Select the appropriate licensing link from the Licensing Menu.
- Add/Update the Animal Details page as required.
- For more information on how to process to this point, see the original License Procedure document here.
- The License/Registration Details page will load
- You will three options:
- Shelter Buddy Shelter (i.e. your organisation)
- External Seller
- Future License/Registration
- Select the Future License or Future Registration option (as labelled by your site).
- A modal will appear:
- Select the organisation selling the license registration from the drop-down by clicking the down arrow.
- The Future Registration Issuer will default to the jurisdiction set on the Person Details page. If this is incorrect, you can amend it by selecting something different from the drop-down here.
- In the box marked Rabies and Registration/License Due, set the date that the license is due to be issued/finalised.
- Click Submit

- When you next run 262 License Renewal Report/Registration Renewal Report for the date set as the Rabies and Registration/License Due date, this pet will be included in the report return, letters, and excel download.
