State Regulations When Moving with Pets

When traveling, it is necessary to ID your pet because there is an increased possibility they will runaway or escape. Whether using an ID tag or opting for a technological identification system, such as placing a microchip on your pet, it is important that all the information is present-name, address, phone number and email. Use our checklist to ensure your pet can be properly identified in the event they are lost:

Make sure your pet has an easily readable ID. For dogs and cats this can be a collar and for birds a tag around the leg is appropriate. At the very least, ID tags should have your pet's name, destination address, your name, telephone number and even an email address.

It is also a good idea to have an alternate name and number on the tags in the event somebody finds your lost pet and is unable to get in contact with you.

For travel, your pet may be required to wear special travel tags which the airline will provide.

Obtain rabies tags for your pet, and depending on the state you live in this will most likely be a requirement.
