Transporting Shelter Animals Cross-Country
Journeying from shelters or rescues to loving forever homes can be a difficult journey for pets, often making them more prone to disease and leading to behavioral issues, which make finding homes even harder.
To ease their journeys, a network of shelters, rescues, and volunteers have joined forces in transporting animals across the country into new homes – helping reduce shelter overcrowding while giving many more animals second chances at life.
Relocating rescued animals has long been part of animal welfare practices, but Hurricane Katrina spurred it on even further. Since then, relocation programs have become an integral component of animal welfare practices across America.
Transporters range from individual car owners with two kennels in the back all the way up to large organizations like the ASPCA, which operates a national transport program. No matter their structure, most transport networks are volunteer-based and offer essential support to animal shelters and rescue groups across the United States.
Each pet transported must first undergo a health exam and be up-to-date on all vaccinations required for travel. Furthermore, their carrier should make sure their housing allows for ample standing space as well as being suitable for turning around or lying down comfortably – these areas must also be regularly assessed for signs of discomfort, heat stress or illness.
Not only are collaborative transport efforts beneficial for animal transport, but they also strengthen relationships between shelters and rescues that could potentially benefit each group in the future. They foster the creation of an ever-stronger network of people committed to animal welfare – both volunteers and supporters.
RedRover has asked some experienced transporters for advice in finding suitable adopters for transport pets, with their recommendations including:
Transporting Animals Cross-Border for Adoption
Transporting animals across borders for adoption can be an extremely controversial practice. On the one hand, it provides shelter animals a second chance at life, while at the same time, some individuals abuse this system to import exotic pets for breeding purposes and cause health issues as well as cruelty in these situations.
If you are thinking about starting an animal rescue, it must operate legally from day one. That means registering as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in your state and hiring legal transportation services for the animals you transport (whether sick kitten to veterinarian or group to adoption event). Your animal transporter plays an essential role in making your rescue successful!
Pet transport typically occurs from shelter to shelter, meaning adopted pets often travel hundreds or even thousands of miles before reaching the adoption floor. Adopters may find this problematic, so protection and rescues should discuss this topic prior to posting an adoptable animal for cross-border adoption.
Establishing clear guidelines for those transporting pets for adoption is also crucial, such as mandating spay/neuter before travel and providing a health certificate from a veterinarian. All pets should also ideally be microchipped and vaccinated prior to leaving home.
When transporting animals for adoption, you must interview the owner or person giving up the animal to gather details about the why and history of this particular pet. Inquire as to their motivations for surrendering it as well as any medical or behavioral issues it has encountered – the more information gathered will help find suitable homes for each dog or cat you transport.
As soon as you’re ready to expand your rescue, it must attract volunteers with similar animal interests. This might involve creating a website and social media pages where pictures of animals that need help are posted and asking current volunteers for referrals; this is often an effective way of finding qualified volunteers as they will only refer those who share their passion.
Transporting Animals Cross-Border for Veterinary Care
When transporting pets across a border for veterinary care, it’s wise to work with an experienced veterinarian in this type of transport. They will be able to guide pet owners about any applicable regulations or restrictions regarding the particular country/border crossing in question and should provide documentation of rabies vaccination status and any other relevant documents as needed.
When transporting pets to Mexico, veterinarians must present an official health certificate from their clinic written on letterhead – including license number and state that the veterinary office has authorization to conduct commercial export shipments – in addition to endorsing this document with their official signature for transportation purposes. It should remain with your pet throughout all steps in its journey.
Certain animals can be more challenging to transport cross-border, such as nonhuman primates and certain reptiles and invertebrates. Before trying to bring any pet into another country, contact its embassy and review its international animal export regulations – this includes requirements such as veterinarian examinations and vaccinations as well as any quarantine periods or restrictions placed upon imported pets.
Border officials can refuse entry of an animal deemed too sick or dangerous or require that it go through a veterinary inspection and get more shots at your expense. Therefore, it’s crucial that your pet always appears healthy and meets all export and import regulations, significantly, as rules could change at any time by foreign veterinary inspectors – make sure you regularly check government websites for updates!
Transporting Animals Cross-Border for Medical Care
Animal rescue organizations sometimes transport animals across the U.S. and Canada for veterinary treatment not available locally, which puts their health at risk and may violate state or federal laws. For more information about importation/export laws for pets, please see WSDA’s Pet Import/Export Guide.
States, territories, and countries each have specific legal health requirements for animals entering their borders to help ensure they do not carry serious diseases like rabies. Typically, this involves having your animal’s export health certificate approved by the USDA-APHIS office serving your destination country; to find this office, go online to the USDA-APHIS Website and click “Cross-Border Transport” under “People and Pets.”
CDC regulates the importation of pets and wildlife into the U.S. to protect human health, prevent the introduction of foreign animal diseases into this country, promote public welfare, and maintain public safety. Working closely with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), partner government agencies (PGAs), as well as state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement officials, ensuring imported pets and wildlife enter our nation’s borders legally and safely.
