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.
You must register your pet within 10 days of moving on base at the Langley base veterinary clinic and 15 days at the Fort Eustis clinic. Your pet will be required to have a current rabies vaccination.
Licensing of the family pet is required by all local counties and cities. Owners are requested to contact the county or city in which they will be living to obtain specific information on local requirements.
Virginia does not have a quarantine period.
Once you have decided that an animal is going to be your traveling companion, plan for your pet's trip in the same way you would plan your own - well in advance. Make sure your pet is in good health. A clean bill of health is an important first step in assuring your pet's ability to adjust safely to unfamiliar surroundings. You may want to discuss with your veterinarian the possibility of prescribing motion sickness medication or a sedative. Don't tranquilize your pet automatically as this can be very dangerous. Try to avoid traveling with an animal during extreme weather. Schedule travel times for early morning or evening hours during the summer months.
Ensure that your pet wears an identification tag, which includes your pet's name, and your phone number; micro chipping is also a good idea. Ensure that the pet's carrier is properly labeled and that it's large enough for your pet to stand up and lie down.
Important: Most airlines will not accept pets during the summer months unless they are small enough to travel in the cabin with you. ***Due to COVID 19, many flight restrictions are in place. Please contact your airline to verify availability and policy changes.***
If you and your pet plan to stay in a hotel, call in advance to check if pets are allowed and to make reservations. Langley lodging has pet friendly facilities. Be aware that on base housing has certain pet restrictions. Be sure to contact the Housing Office for further details.
