CDC Approved Animal Care Facilities

Dogs arriving from a high-risk country for rabies without a US-issued rabies vaccination certificate or CDC Dog Import Permit issued before arrival may only have their dogs enter the United States through a port of entry with a CDC-approved animal care facility.

Contact the facility in advance to make a reservation for the required exam and revaccination for rabies. If you can’t get rabies serology titer results before arrival in the United States, you must also make a reservation for a 28-day quarantine after revaccination.

Your dog must arrive at the airport associated with the facility where you have made a reservation. More facilities may be added during the suspension.

Dogs arriving without a reservation will be denied entry and returned to the country of departure at the importer’s (owner’s) expense.
