I am having a heck of a time registering one of my crias with ARI. They really need to do something about making it easier to find basic information on their site.

Does anyone know the current price of registering a cria that is less than 6 months old? I can't get any of the forms on the ARI site to download and am going to send in a paper registration form.

I have Google Chrome as well as the updated versions of Internet Explorer and the latest Acrobat as well. Nothing worked. I will give them a call Monday.

ARI lists which browsers they support right on the home page - "The Alpaca Registry, Inc. website is designed for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0 or higher; Mozilla Firefox 4.0 or higher; and Google Chrome 12 or higher. Other browsers are not supported by the ARI staff and may have limited functionality. Please visit the technical links page if you need to download the latest version of a supported web browser."

Christiane: another thought.....
although I am decidedly NOT an internet expert, one thing I've learned when logging into some of my accounts to pay bills is that not all browsers work correctly with all sites. For example, I usually use Firefox, but can't pay my insurance bills online that way. If I switch over to Explorer, that site works perfectly.
Maybe worth a try?

When I have any problem with ARI (and I have had some) I call them and ask for their help. They have done it many times, like when I could not find the BVD results in their site.
I found out that doing it in the Internet, speeds up my registrations enormously, and I do not wonder if the mail is slow or the paperwork got lost on the way.
Good luck.

Thanks, Ruthann. That is what I remembered as well, but wanted to do it online and the darn thing just did not work.
Kimberly, the link you gave did not work--did not bring up anything. At least I did the the ARI home page open and got through most of the registration, but when I went to pay for it I could not get to that part. Sending is via snail mail because I want it to be done this month.

The site says it is $55 for under a year old -- and then I think it is another $20 for the BVDV as I paid $75 each just a month ago for each of my three that I did. I'd call if I were you if you can't get it to work it may be an incompatibily issue with your browser or something they can walk you through.

Good Luck!
