Choosing a Pet When You Are in the Military

By: Bridget Monrad, R.N. | Nov 03, 2023

Getting a new pet is an exciting decision! You get to pick out a cute collar and fun toys. Pick out the perfect name and plan for all the fun adventures you are going to have with your new family member! While there are many considerations you must keep in mind to decide which pet is right for you, those who are active-duty military have one more. With PCS moves that can send you and your family just about anywhere on the globe, the type of pet you have will determine how easy it will be to bring your dog or cat with you… or if you will be able to bring them with you at all.

At Happy Tails Travel, we ship your pets by air with care to just about anywhere (domestic and international pet relocation assistance is offered), and our prices are fair. We will customize and assist with all of the details and logistics of your pet move whether it is local, national, or international pet travel. Our goal is a hassle-free, safe journey for your pet, and peace of mind for you. We make moving pets a breeze!

We are advocates for all pets moving. This includes pets who are now restricted from air travel due to airline changes in pet policy. We offer private transport from current home to new home. This is especially helpful for Giant breed, Snub nosed, and "Dangerous" breed dogs. It also benefits people who want an alternative to Airline Travel for their pet. Read more about our pet ground travel services.

Please fill out the Pet Travel Services Form to provide us with all the necessary information to meet your individual pet relocation and pet shipping needs. We can prepare 'Known Shipper' documentation and expedite the shipping of your pet through the entire pet move process. As a certified USDA Intermediate Handler, we comply with the Animal Welfare Act and applicable federal and airline pet move regulations.

With the information from your no cost/no obligation Pet Travel Services Form we can address your entire pet shipping, pet relocation, or pet transport needs. Let us help you safely ship your cat, dog, puppy, or kitten!

Loyal Customers – Many of our clients come back to use us for their next pet move, and refer friends and family to us. Our professional, friendly & customized pet services are some of the reasons we have people utilize our pet relocation planning again & again!

Military PCS

We support our troops! We understand often times PCS moves can be sudden and into unfamiliar destinations. We are here to assist you in making sure your furry family members are able to accompany you on the next exciting chapter of your life.

Tax Benefit for US Citizen Pet Owners:
