Pet Licensing/Immunization Requirements
All dogs and cats in the Metropolitan Area are required to be immunized against rabies and registered annually. Those dogs and cats housed off-base must be registered with the city/county at the Animal regulation and Disease Control Center for a nominal fee. Those animals on-base must be registered with the JB Andrews VTF within 5 working days of their arrival. Proof of rabies immunizations within the last year is required of all dogs and cats over 3 months of age. Registration and immunization are required yearly. If your animals were not vaccinated by the Andrews vet, bring the certificate of rabies vaccination to the VTF facility for registration and/or updating of their records.
By JB Andrews regulation and housing policy, ALL pit bull dogs are banned from JB Andrews Housing. This information is printed in the Andrews Housing Brochure and members found in violation of these regulations have had UCMJ action taken against them by the command as well as been evicted from AAFB housing.
Furthermore, all pit bull dogs born after 03 February 1997 are banned from Prince Georges County, MD--the county in Maryland where JB Andrews is located. Members residing in Prince Georges County with a pre-ban animal (born before 03 February 1997) must be able to prove to the satisfaction of county officials the date of birth of the animal. Additionally, many surrounding counties in Maryland and Virginia ban these animals and the District of Columbia has proposed a ban on these animals. JB Andrews Veterinary Services will not vaccinate or treat an animal banned at JB Andrews or by Prince Georges County.
Planning for shipment of your pet includes researching airline requirements and quarantine restriction laws in your new location. You will need to ask the airlines the requirements for size, weight, number of animals, kennel construction, documentation and seasonal limitations. Occasionally, small pets can be shipped on military flights but availability and regulations are always changing, as well as fees. It is important to note that the member will be responsible for any fees that include: lodging for the animal, kennel fees, boarding fees, inoculations, country entry fees, and any other examination costs. The transportation costs of any exotic or large animals (horses, fish, birds, various rodents, etc.) will not be reimbursed.
Many international locations have strict importation laws including extended quarantines and restrictions on breeds or types of animals that can be brought into the country. Carefully research these rules as they could impact your moving schedule. Not only do overseas locations have strict rules but many locations have restrictions on dangerous dogs as well.
