Moving to & Living on Kauai With Pets:

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with KAUAI DREAMS REALTY Kauai Real Property Specialist RB-14203

At Kauai Dreams Realty we often get inquiries from people looking for a rental or wanting to purchase a home here who have pets. If you don’t already live in the state of Hawaii, your first Internet stop should be to the State of Hawaii Animal Information Page.

By visiting the site a pet owner can prep their animal for the 5 day or less program and skip the dreaded 120-day quarantine program. But the 5-day program requires some preparation time. So don’t think about delaying the program until a week before your move.

If you have a pet and our looking for a rental, you will have a difficult mission before you and expect to pay top dollar. Many condos do allow pets though Click here for a list Kauai condos that allow pets. 

The good news is we have a lot of excellent veterinarians on the island. We have been using the Kapaa Animal Clinic.  It’s nice to see that there are 2 Dr. Ahana’s now as the senior Dr. Ahana now has his son practicing with him.

 

Moving can be a stressful experience. Minimize that stress for yourself and your pets by doing your homework on your move. If you don’t already have a faithful animal friend, you can stop by the Kauai Humane Society  and test drive their newest occupants.

If you are looking to buy on Kauai, give us a call at Kauai Dreams Realty 808 822-7774. Or call me directly on my cell at 808 652-6174. You can also reach me by email. Julie Black julie@kauaidreams.com. We are a pet friendly brokerage.

I remember hearing about the 120 day quarantine years ago.  I did not know that with proper preparation you could facilitate a 5 day program.  That's good to know.

That's a great idea to share the rules for having pets in Kauai. That's one of the islands I haven't been to and it looks simply fabulous!

Great information, Julie. I remember the days when there was no work-around for the quarantine and had friends who "suffered" through the period with their babies in quarantine. I assume this is now the same across all the islands?

WOW! This is excellent information! When my daughter moved overseas she took her cat and there were lots of rules, regulations, and restrictions too. You have done an excellent job preparing people moving with pets.

As somebody like me who doesn’t have children yet, I think I can get attached and understand how people feel about theit pets pretty darn well! Patricia Feager
