When it comes to moving we think about packing, boxing and all the work involved. But we fail to think about the move of all the pets. We at DZ Moving want to make sure every aspect of your next move goes smoothly. So we put together a list of tips for moving with your pets.

Tips for Transportation of Pets:

  • Pets cannot be shipped on moving vans.
  • Keep your pet on a leash when outside during the moving process.
  • It is important that your pet wears a special identification tag with its name, your name and where you can be reached if lost.

Entry Requirements & Tips:

  • If your move is across state lines, check with your new State Veterinarian or State Department of Animal Husbandry. A good place to start is the U.S. State and Territory Animal Import Regulations website.
  • Interstate health certificates must be obtained for dogs and horses prior to entering most states.
  • Some pets must have an entry permit issued by the destination state’s regulatory agency.
  • A few states have border inspection of all animals being transported; others have random inspections.

Local Laws

Be sure to check your local community laws. Some communities have pet control and licensing ordinances. In some cases, the number of pets is limited.
