Pet Travel Question: A Military Move to Germany

Name: Hannah
Number of Pets: 3
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Beagle, Jack Russell Mix
From: United States
To: Germany

I'm slightly overwhelmed with everything that is going on and would like to plan what I can at this point, but I don't know where to start or what to do. My husband and I are relocating to Vilseck, Germany. He is in the ARMY. He is in Iraq right now, and at this point all we know is that we will be moving between October and December. Can I take three dogs, and if so how do I go about it? I need to do this also to see if I can afford this. The ARMY will not be paying for me or our dogs to relocate. Can you help me by pushing me in the right direction?
