BREAKING NEWS!!

It was announced yesterday that the importation of dogs to the US will be temporarily suspended from over 100 countries. The risk of rabies has increased over the last year due to the pandemic, a lack of safe quarantine facilities, as well as three recent incidents of dogs infected with rabies being brought into the US. If dogs are not being properly vaccinated before travelling into the US, it brings a risk of another nation wide infection that would cost millions of dollars to recover from.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has the right to issue advance written approval on an extremely limited basis. If travelers do wish to import a dog from a high risk country they will need to apply for approval 6 weeks before the scheduled date of travel. The CDC has stated “This suspension applies to all dogs, including puppies, emotional support dogs, and dogs that traveled out of the United States and are returning from a high-risk country,”

According to CNN, the suspension will only affect around 6% of the 1 million dogs being transported into the US. Dr Pieracci who is a veterinary medical officer in CDC’s Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, has said that the suspension will affect dog rescue missions and could affect soldiers bringing back rescue dogs from Afghanistan.

Please check the official list of countries released by the CDC that will be temporarily suspended from transporting pets into the country. It is important to stress that this is a temporary suspension and will be reviewed periodically.
