    Long distance moves create certain challenges that do not exist when making a local move. Not only do you need to make arrangements for your furnishings, household items, and car you also have to take into consideration any pets you have. Animals cannot ride in the back of a moving van, making it your job to figure out another method of introducing them to their new home. Meeting State Regulations The transportation of live animals across state lines is monitored, and you may be asked to show certain documentation depending on which states you are entering. When planning your move, call your new state’s state veterinarian and ask about their specific regulations. If your animal is traveling by ground transportation you will also need to consider the regulations for any other state they may be driving through.
