Things you need to consider when moving with children.
Your family pet will require special attention and care during a move. Both getting to the new location and settling into the new home can be difficult on a pet and will take some time. By planning ahead, you can make the journey easier for both you and your pet.
First, make sure your pet has an up-to-date identification tag. Contact your vet and explain where and when you are moving. Rely on advice from the vet to determine the best mode of transport and whether the pet will need any special medication.
If you are transporting your pet by air, contact the airline for specifics on the care and handling requirements for live animals. Most airlines will sell you an approved shipping container or advise you if your pet can travel in a carrier undera seat in the cabin. Once you and your pet reach your new home, you can help your pet adjust by introducing familiaritems from your previous home, such as toys, blankets, dishes,etc.
Some employers may authorize the cost of shipping pets. Your CCR can advise you of the specifics of your particular relocation policy and assist with pet transportation if necessary.
