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.
If you are traveling with your pet, be sure your pet is up to date on all vaccines and you have enough of any medicine or prevention that your pet will need for the duration of your trip. If traveling with your pet by air, check with the airline as early as possible to determine the airline's requirements.
If PCSing out of country, check the country's guidelines as soon as possible so that you may be able to travel with your pet instead of shipping it later.
Your pet will need a veterinary health certificate no more than ten days before traveling, so plan ahead and give yourself plenty of time for an appointment. Remember to pick up your health record or inform the clinic that you are moving, so that the record can be properly disposed of.
Pet transportation questions should be referred to your transportation office.
There are no quarantine requirements at New River/Camp Lejeune. However, if you are shipping your pet to an overseas location it is very important that you contact the veterinarian to ensure your pet meets all requirements for the new location you are being assigned to. Each country and state have varying requirements.
There are no kennels on base. A list of local kennels can be found in the yellow pages. To board a pet shot records are required.
The base veterinary clinic is in Bldg. TT2451, Tarawa Terrace and can be reached at 910-450-1607. Hours of operation are Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The United States Marine Corps has set official policy on types of dogs allowed in installation housing and other rules surrounding pets on base. You must read the MCIEAST-MCB CAMPLEJO 10570.2A before you plan your move, if you plan to live in government housing with any pets to include service animals.
Local laws require that dogs and cats be inoculated against rabies; dogs must wear a collar with rabies tag affixed. All cats and dogs must be registered with the Base Domestic Animal Control Office (DACO) located in building 58 aboard Camp Lejeune. The Veterinary clinic provides minor veterinary services on a fee basis. Jacksonville City ordinances require that dogs be kept on a leash/chain or confined within fences. Call Animal Control at 910-455-0182 if there are any problems.
