Moving to Hawaii? Help Your Pets Make The Move With Tips From Oahu’s Best Movers!, Ewa, Hawaii

When you’re moving to Hawaii, you shouldn’t leave your furry family members behind. But know that when it comes to pets, the Hawaiian government has rules for bringing them from the mainland to the Hawaiian Islands. Pearl City moving company M. Dyer & Sons, Inc. wants to make you aware of these rules, so your pets will be comfortable during their big move.

Your pet will need to travel in a crate. If your pet is used to running around freely, they will likely become anxious if they're forced into a cramped space. Before you move, it’s important to get your pet acclimated to a crate. Train them to sleep in the crate as you would train them to sleep in a cage. As they become more comfortable, you will have an easier time transporting them when it comes time to move.

The Hawaii Department of Agriculture has strict rules about bringing pets to the islands to prevent the spread of rabies. Therefore, your pet must complete either a 120-day or 5-day-or-less rabies quarantine program upon arriving in Hawaii. The 5-day-or-less program allows your pet an early release from quarantine. However, this program requires pre-approval, and will not work for all pets. You are allowed to visit your pet during quarantine, but only during designated hours at the quarantine facility.  Bringing a pet to Hawaii can be expensive and stressful if the pet arrives without all the proper shots and paperwork.

After your pet is released from quarantine, you will have to introduce them to their new home. Because of the sudden change of space, slow introduction is key to avoiding negative changes in your pet’s behavior. Introduce your pet to one room at a time, and position their bowls and toys accordingly. With care and patience, your pet will adapt to the new space in no time.

Moving your pet to Hawaii is a challenge, but it’s worth keeping the family together. If you are moving to Hawaii and have any concerns, contact M. Dyer & Sons, Inc. to meet all of your moving and storage needs. Call the moving company at (808) 456-4200, or visit them online for more information.
