Guam has only two kennels certified to quarantine your incoming pets: Andersen Pet Lodge (available to those affiliated with the military) and Harper Valley Kennels. Pet quarantine on Guam has become very confusing for personnel transferring with pets. For specific questions, contact Government of Guam, Department of of Agriculture, Animal Health Section, 163 Dairy Rd., Mangilao, Guam 96913, 671-300-7964/66 or Andersen Boarding Facility: 671-366-5020.
Guam's quarantine law is designed to protect residents and pets from potential serious health problems associated with the presence and spread of rabies. The quarantine program's success is dependent on isolating your pet from other animals for the required quarantine period.
It's the law. Title 10 Guam Code Annotated Chapter 34 Article 3 governs importation of dogs, cats and other carnivores into Guam. This law states that these animals are required to complete a 120-day confinement in an approved commercial quarantine facility. If specific pre-arrival and post-arrival requirements are met, animals may qualify for a shorter quarantine. Public Law 27-84 provides for a five day or less quarantine program for pets entering Guam, provided that requirements are met prior to entry, by amending ss34302(b) of Title 10, Guam Code annotated. Ss(b)(2) is added to ss34302 of Division 2 of Title 10 of the Guam Code Annotated. Please call the Department of Agriculture, 671-300-7964/66, for further details.
Animals originating from the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Hawaii on direct flights to Guam may be exempt from quarantine requirements after meeting shipping and veterinary examination requirements.
Handlers of service dogs, dogs belonging to a Federal or State Government Agency, or certified guide dogs may wish to have their animals qualified to allow them to enter Guam without being held in quarantine at the commercial quarantine facility. Please contact Department of Agriculture for more information. All other dogs and cats, regardless of purpose or health status are required to comply with Guam's quarantine law, and all must obtain a valid Entry Permit prior to travel.
Quarantine times vary. Animals may be subjected to extended commercial quarantine pending post-arrival inspection.
Determine if your pet should move to Guam
Guam is a tropical island with high temperatures and humidity throughout the year. DOD recommends that pets that are very old, very young (not less than nine weeks if coming from exempt areas), chronically ill or debilitated, or pets that experience difficulty in hot climates, not be imported into Guam for quarantine. Pregnant animals past 45 days of gestation are prohibited entry into quarantine. Persons importing pets into Guam do so at their own risk. The Government of Guam and DOD will not assume any liability for any consequences during shipment or confinement. The owner assumes all liability upon presenting the animals for entry into Guam.

All original documents such as the two latest rabies certificates, the latest immunization record and the original health certificate must be retained and attached to the kennel.
