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.
Pets must be registered with the base veterinary clinic within 10 calendar days of occupancy of government quarters or when a housing occupant acquires a new pet. To register your animal, bring a copy of a current rabies certificate, signed by a licensed veterinarian and your DOD ID Card.
