Plan for Your Pets
Because pets have an instinctive fear of new surroundings, pet owners want to help them adjust quickly.
Pre-planning is the key to an easier transfer, regardless of the mode of transportation chosen. Travel arrangements should be completed as far in advance of moving day as is practical, keeping departure day tasks to a minimum. One person in the family should assume responsibility for the pet.
It is always helpful if your pet is not subjected to the stress of loading and unloading. Your pet will be happier somewhere else and so will your moving crew.
Prior to making any travel arrangements, you should do the following:
- Take pet to veterinarian for checkup and health documents
- Check destination state’s pet entry regulations.
Many animal relocation services are also available, such as Pet Assure® and their network of veterinarians, groomers, trainers, pet sitters and boarders. Contact Pet Assure or visit Pets On The Go for extensive information about relocating your pets!
