Timeframe for submitting paper work Effective June 1,
All paperwork with supporting documents, including photos, service memos, bill of sale, etc., and full payment are to be submitted within 7 (seven) days of initiating the registration/transfer etc.
If you have any question as to the required info needed, contact the office for help.
If, after 7 days you have not sent everything required, your data will be put in a suspense folder, and you will be given notice that you have 7 days to complete, or your process will be halted, materials will be returned at member’s cost, and the process will need to be re-initiated, including required fees.
MDGA encourages any member that ‘is in the process’ of sending required follow up photos, documentation, payment, or anything else to complete their requested registration &/or transfer, be submitted to the appropriate staff member by June 1. Timely submission means less room for error, back tracking and follow up, and more time getting things processed for our members!
Grade Rule Changes
The following is an important change to the previous policy regarding accepting new grade animals to the registry:
From January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020 the descendants of all new grades registered will no longer be able to grade up to attain Purebred status; grading up will stop at American status. Offspring of grades, from MDGA registrations on file prior to January 1, 2020, will be exempted from the “American status only” and will be eligible to grade up, provided that there is an unbroken line of registered animals in good standing with MDGA.
At the end of the day December 31, 2020 the Registry will close the book to accepting New Grade animals; no further grade animals will be entered into the registry at that point. Existing grades will be held to the official rules under which they were registered.
We are updating our website and adding some great new features!
Please be paitent as we work on getting this up and running smoothly and removing all the kinks.
