Rabies Control & Quarantine

Hawaii • Australia • France • Ireland • New Zealand • United Kingdom
For International travel, the rabies shot must be at least 30 days old and not more than 1 year old regardless of type of vaccine. We recommend Rabies shots for cats, even though they are not always required.

We ask that you have four (4) copies of the health certificate from the Veterinarian which should be issued not more than 10 days before travel. Also, VERY IMPORTANT: Be sure a complete shot record is attached, showing ALL shots, including Rabies. In very rare instances, the pet may need to be boarded during travel times, and the kennel will require proof of shots. If a pet does NOT have certain shots due to age or health reasons, the Veterinarian should so note.

During cold weather, the Veterinarian should provide a letter of acclimation stating the pet can accomodate temperatures from 20 to 45 degrees F, or else the airline may refuse shipment. 

Some states and countries have strict vaccination and quarantine laws. These laws are in place to protect your beloved pet, as well as local animals from potential incubating diseases your pet may have. We have provided links below to some of the states and coutries that have these srtict vaccination and quarantine laws.
