Pet Travel Question: Moving a Puppy to the United States from Cuba

Name: Alba
Number of Pets: One
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Mix
From: Havana, Cuba
To: Miami, USA

I found a puppy in a pile of trash in Havana the night before my flight left. I would like to know how I can get the puppy to the United States.




Hi Alba,

Thanks for your question, and congrats on your new puppy! The good news is that the United States is one of the less restrictive countries for importing pets, so you'll just need to take care of a few basic requirements (namely a health certificate and proof of rabies vaccination).

We do recommend waiting until the dog is at least four months old before you fly, so hopefully that won't be an issue for you. If you have any questions about any of this please contact us, and good luck with everything.
