Moving to Hawaii with your cat or dog?

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties RS-47693

Are you or your client moving to Hawaii with an important family member that may need quarantine? 

Hawaii is rabies-free.  This means that all dogs and cats must comply with Hawaii's animal quarantine laws.  There are some restrictions on certain breeds.  However, you should go online (go to the Hawaii government site below) and read the 5-day-or less program and its checklist in case you would like your pet to prepare for such a program.  Otherwise, your pet may need to be quarantined up to 120 days.

Being a pet-friendly agent from NY, I appreciate the heads-up that you are giving animal lovers who may be moving.  Most pets would not survive 120 days in quarantine.  Personally, I think this is over the top..unless the animal has NOT had the appropriate vaccinations.  I know that Islands have special issues with this, but I think that many of these rules are  antiquated.

I agree.  Most pet owners would not survive visiting the quarantine station for 120 days!

Ronda - I would love to move to Hawaii, but have to put up with balmy Victoria today. The Annual Polar Bear swim is happening at noon!

All the Best for 2009

This is a smart law, you have to control what comes in and goes out. Good post to remind people who are relocating.
