    PETS...

    Advertisements
    Whats' the deal with bringing your pet when you are assigned a duty station...

    I was embarrassed to ask at the Recruiter's office...

    We a precious year old Boxer puppy, but desperately needs a fenced in yard.

    are you requesting housing? If so you need to let housing know. If you are living in town you find a house with a yard.

    Usually housing allows two pets. If your concerned look in town for housing.

    I'd call the vet at your local base too and ask what they recommend you do as far as steps to take and documents to always have on hand. You'll need to keep a good health record file in case you ever need to take your pet OCONUS.

    You'll need to find out about housing where you're going. Not all housing allows pets. Some have a long wait and others don't.

    Some PPV companies have a list of breeds you can't have in housing too.

    also the housing offices will not assign housing based on pet needs- not all housing has fenced yards, some are townhomes, apt style duplexes and some are single family.
    many have breed restrictions, weight restrictions and some PPV are even charging non refundable pet fees.
    each housing area can be operated differently than any one others.

    I'm stuck in an uber crappy situation. I have a 13 yr old cat and the live in nanny position I'm taking won't allow her to be housed with me. So I'm trying to find a foster home for her. I mean...she's welcome in the house I'll be working/living in but I don't know about the guard dog eating her alive thing...lol. Gaaaah this is my first move, so I hope the next one won't be so exhausting finding my baby a home!

    I would give up everything to be where I am right now, except you. You're the only one getting me through all this. - my soon-to-be airman.

    I'd definitely contact the housing office of the base he'll be assigned to. for instance some homes on our base are apartments and you have no yard. They won't assign you to a house on our base based on your pet's needs. also a good majority of them have VERY small yards......so your dog would have to be walked.

    it all depends!

    Norfolk will. We told them we had dogs and they marked us as needing fenced yard.
