Re: Leaving Switzerland with Dogs to US

As this was the only thread I found on this topic, here is some more info I collected because I am leaving Switzerland in June with my dog. Do not follow these steps, these are just the steps I took to come to the conclusion that I do not have to do anything and I will not get partially reimbursed for the dog tax when moving abroad.

1. I started by emailing this form to stp-hundekontrolle@zuerich.ch but they said upon de-registering myself in Switzerland the Hundekontrolle would be notified automatically.
"Sobald Sie sich in Zürich abmelden, werden Ihre Daten automatisch auch in der Hundekontrolle gelöscht. Bei AMICUS muss ich Sie bitten Ihren Hund telefonisch unter 0848 777 100 abzumelden."

2. To me this read that I would need to contact AMICUS. Therefore, I contacted AMICUS using this form. The reply was:
"The removal will be registered indeed by the Hundekontrolle. Unfortunately we can not adjust any address information on Amicus."

3. Because of this reply, I went back to Hundekontrolle who said they removed me from the AMICUS database already even though I leave in a month. I guess that is fine (?).
"Ich habe Sie bei AMICUS ins Ausland abgemeldet.
Leider kann ich dies nur per sofort machen und nicht als Zukunftsdatum eingeben.
Ich werde AMICUS diesbezüglich kontaktieren.
Entschuldigen Sie bitte die Umstände."

4. Finally, I asked about reimbursement because they said if before June on the website you could get reimbursed, but that is only for the death of the animal before July 1st, and not for moving abroad.
"Leider sieht das kantonale Hundegesetz bei Wegzug ins Ausland keine Rückzahlung vor."
