Policies and rules for shipping pets vary at each installation. It’s important to understand the regulations, prohibitions and laws at your new installation before moving with a pet. Below, you’ll find installation-specific details for registering, boarding and transporting your pet.
On base and in the city of Cheyenne, dogs and cats age 4 months and older (and horses age 6 months and older) must be vaccinated as required by Wyoming state law including annual vaccination against rabies. Pets that reside in Laramie County can be administered a three-year rabies vaccine once the initial and first-year vaccines have been received.
In addition to rabies vaccination, dogs are to be vaccinated against distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, coronavirus and parvovirus at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age. Dogs are to be revaccinated annually by a military or civilian veterinarian. Cats are to be vaccinated against feline rhinotracheitis, distemper, calicivirus, feline leukemia and chlamydia at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age. Cats are to be revaccinated annually by a military or civilian veterinarian. Horses will comply with the vaccination/ test requirements of the Fort D.A. Russell Outriders Club. Call the vet clinic at 307-773-3354 for further information.
Vaccinations cost less at the on-base vet clinic versus off base. Horse vaccinations will be administered by a civilian veterinarian as these services are not provided by the base clinic.
When pets are vaccinated by the base veterinary clinic for rabies, pet owners will be issued a numbered and dated rabies tag and a DD Form 2208, Rabies Vaccination Certificate, for each animal. When pets are vaccinated off base, the owner must provide an accurate record of the vaccination(s) to the base clinic.
To register pets, vaccination records should be presented to the veterinary clinic, located in Building 2342, within seven days after arrival.
Prohibited animals in base housing include pit bulls; Rottweilers and any mix thereof; wild, exotic or undomesticated animals; poisonous reptiles or large constrictor-type snakes; and hoofed animals, except when kept in a designated base area and which qualify as riding, draft or show animal. Pit bull and Rottweiler owners residing off base will be allowed access to the base veterinary clinic.
On base, pets (including cats) are permitted off leash when inside the owners residence or within the owners enclosed yard and in designated areas on base. (See FEWI 31-3 for further guidance.)
Pets should be in good overall health and current on vaccinations when traveling. For this reason, a veterinary health certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian is required of any pet traveling across state lines and abroad. If you are sending pets by air travel, you should check with the airline well in advance for restrictions (weight, size, age, weather) and what documents will be required. If traveling overseas, member should contact the destinations consulate for additional required documents. Some airlines do not allow pet travel during extreme temperatures (hot or cold).
There is no quarantine for dogs and cats coming to F. E. Warren Air Force Base; however, current vaccinations are required. For horses coming onto base, call the vet clinic at 307-773-3354 for further information. Pets involved in a biting case will be home quarantined for 10 days.
F. E. Warren Air Force Base does not offer boarding facilities on base; however, there are several facilities located in the Cheyenne area. Prices range from $8-$18 per day. It is highly recommended that boarding arrangements be made prior to arrival. Local boarding facilities require pets to have a current bordetella (kennel cough) vaccination prior to being boarded.
The base veterinary clinic provides vaccinations, limited sick call, diagnostic tests (including heartworm, feline leukemia and intestinal parasites), spaying, neutering and dentals. Patients are seen by appointment only. The clinic provides no emergency services. Health problems to consider range from frost bite in the winter to allergies in the spring and summer. Kennel cough in dogs and upper respiratory infections in cats can be a problem when boarding pets. To ensure a smooth transition for pets, plan well in advance.
