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.
Animals must be licensed, micro-chipped and registered with the base veterinarian. Untagged or unlicensed animals will be picked up and turned over to the Corpus Christi Animal Control Office. If you live off-base, then you must register your pet with the City.
Tags are issued only after animals have been immunized against rabies. Semi-domesticated or wild animals (such as wolf-hybrids, ferrets, etc.) are not allowed on base.
For questions regarding the status of pets, Veterinarian Services should be contacted at (361) 961-3952. A veterinarian's receipt is necessary for proof of immunization.
State law requires that animals be immunized each year regardless of the type of vaccine used, and the Animal Control Office must be notified of re-immunization. Additionally, a tag stating owner's name, address and telephone number should be affixed to the collar of the animals.
Dog and cat bites should be immediately reported to the Security Department or the Naval Health Clinic for treatment and observation.

Remember, it is a good idea to make advanced reservations for pet boarding as soon as you know your arrival date. This is an area where your sponsor can be of great assistance. If you and your pet plan to stay in a hotel, motel or inn, call in advance to check if pets are allowed and make reservations.
It is not a good idea to try and "sneak" a pet in or announce upon your arrival that the reason you need a double room is that your Irish Wolfhound is staying with you. You and your pet could be left without a place to stay.
