Can you please tell me the requirements for moving my three cats from New York to Hawaii?
Thanks very much,
Thanks for your question, we'd be happy to help. Moving pets to Hawaii does require extra work compared to going to any other US state, so you'll want to go over everything carefully in advance to make sure your cats' move is a smooth one.
Here's a link to the official state of Hawaii website including frequently asked questions about pet entry and quarantine. If you carry out the steps correctly regarding timing of the rabies vaccines, etc., you should be able to avoid quarantine with the 5-day-or-less program.
In addition to following this information, you'll also want to book your cats' flight on a pet friendly airline and help them to feel as comfortable as possible in their travel crates. Here are some cat crate-training tips in case you want to know more.
If you think you'd like some assistance with your move, feel free to contact us. We've helped several cats move to Hawaii safely (including Mahalo) and would be happy to help you, too.
Either way, good luck with everything and enjoy Hawaii!
