From an online gift to a charitable gift annuity, your contribution will have a significant impact in the lives of thousands of animals.
Angell Animal Medical Center has five USDA accredited veterinarians and an International Travel Team who are available to assist existing Angell clients only, when traveling internationally with your pet. International travel with a pet requires a significant amount of preparation on the owner’s part, so begin your research as early as you can. Some countries require that you start the process at least six months in advance and that you have a USDA accredited veterinarian examine your pet and complete your paperwork.
Travel requirements for pets are rigorous, and governed by the USDA and outside countries’ requirements. These requirements and costs of travel are significant and the cost to meet all requirements are often subject to change and can range anywhere from $600 upwards to $1,000 per pet.
In order to assist you in that preparation, we have detailed the necessary steps below for you to follow.
There are six steps you will need to take in order to complete the paperwork required for traveling with your pet:
