Operation TOTO – Traveling With Your Pet

What You Need To Know

Your pet must also have a rabies vaccination, which means your pet must be 15 weeks or older to travel with you. Your pet must be microchipped with the microchip registered to you the owner.

As ever the DSCPA are thankful to Customs for their support in highlighting this issue to the traveling public and for their on going vigilance in addressing the illegal puppy trade from Ireland into the UK. We would also like to the thank the Department of Agriculture for their support in this important campaign.

We are thankful to the traveling public for their cooperation and so far we are delighted to see that the majority of people boarding the ferries with their pets this week were compliant.
