As summer approaches, many families may be traveling or relocating to other cities or countries. And hard as it may be to leave Beijing behind, even harder still it is to leave beloved pets. Not only can the process for obtaining exit and entry clearance for animals seem complicated and intimidating, but traveling with pets can be difficult for pet owners and equally difficult – if not traumatic – for the animals.
That is why the good people at the International Center for Veterinary Services are offering free information sessions for those with questions about:
· Legal shelters in Beijing to adopt dogs and cats in need of homes
· Latest dog registration regulations for Beijing
· How to register dogs in Beijing
· Free rabies vaccinations for legally registered dogs
· Protecting pets from heartworm, fleas & ticks
· Safe and legally registered pet foods and prescription foods in China
· Boarding and kenneling pets when traveling
· How to take your pet out of China
For questions about "Bringing Pets into China and Taking Pets Out of China,” information sessions will be held:
- Thursday, March 20th and 27th, 2008, 7:00 – 8:00 PM
- Saturday, March 22nd and 29th, 2:00 – 4:00 PM
IVCS also offers a "New Pet Owners Orientation" on:
- Thursday, April 10th and 24th, 2008 – 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Saturday, April 12th and 26th, 2008 – 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Experienced owners who have taken pets out of China and also imported pets into China will be on hand to share information and answer questions. ICVS doctors will also be in attendance. All sessions are free and open to all members of the community.
