FROZEN SEMEN SHIPMENTS
The shipment process begins when Canine Cryobank Inc. receives two documents; a Frozen Semen Authorization form (filled out by the semen owner) which authorizes the release of stored semen, and a Frozen Semen Order Form (filled out by the bitch owner or new semen owner) that tells Canine Cryobank where to send the semen.
Canine Cryobank then prepares the semen for shipment, bills the party providing the Frozen Semen Order Form a handling charge, and delivers the semen to FedEx for shipment. FedEx separately bills the account provided by the recipient directly for the shipping charges.
The recipient uses the shipped semen, and then returns the empty shipping tank to Canine Cryobank. Again, FedEx bills the provided account number directly for the return shipping charges.

FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS (OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES OR CANADA)
Follow the above instructions (all of the same information is required), and contact Canine Cryobank, Inc. for further instructions. No action will be taken on any international shipments until all required paperwork, forms and clearances are delivered to Canine Cryobank. This may include import licenses, duty waivers, veterinarian clearances, etc. All import requirements are the responsibility of the receiving party or the semen owner (to be determined between them); Canine Cryobank will have no responsibility to obtain any required documentation, inspections, or permits. International shipments can be extremely complicated and time consuming, and Canine Cryobank Inc. has no responsibility beyond delivering the semen to the shipping company. All risk of loss for the semen is to be determined between the semen owner and the recipient.

*Also note that Sundays and Holidays as well as any day that FedEx does not accept shipments do not count as business days when computing shipping times and handling charges. For example, forms received Sunday for shipment on the following Monday are considered same-business-day orders. Likewise, if completed paperwork is received after 11:00 A.M. Pacific time, it is considered received the next business day for purposes of computing shipment times and handling charges.

Delivery times for international destinations (including Canada) vary. If you require earlier delivery than that provided by FedEx, please contact us. Note that any special arrangements will be charged the same day shipment charge PLUS $75.00 per hour (one hour minimum) for Canine Cryobank staff time, and Canine Cryobank will not advance any funds to any shipping agent or company; payment arrangements for shipping charges are solely the responsibility of the recipient.
