Transporting pets to Hawaii
Moving your pets here from the mainland can be a bit intimidating but it doesn't have to be. Preparing your pet for the 5 day or less program does take a bit of time and money but it eliminates the need for a lengthy quarantine here in Hawaii and now enables you to have your pet reunited with you by "direct-release” from any of the outer islands. It takes about 4 months (120 days) of preparation prior to your move and is not available to pets under 10 months of age due to the length of time needed to prepare a pet. There will be a few trips to your mainland vet for blood work, having a microchip inserted, rabies testing and finally a health certification and final pest treatment.
The following is a link to state where you may browse for information of the 5 Day or Less Program and find a checklist for the Direct Release Program: http://hdoa.hawaii.gov/ai/aqs/animal-quarantine- information-page/

Aloha, here I am playing catch up on my website. So much has happened in the past year and I have been truly blessed to be a part of it all. In December I was voted in as "Rookie Realtor of the Year" by the West Hawaii Association of Realtors and wouldn't you know, I was on the mainland and not even on the island at the time. Not only that but my Principal Broker Dave Lucas was voted in as Broker of the year! I love what I do and I am so proud to be a part of the ohana at Koa Realty!
