Personal Service

Put our experience and personal contacts with the agencies and airlines involved with moving your pets to Hawaii to work for you. AkonaPet has “decoded” the information provided on Hawaii Animal Quarantine and airline pet travel websites for you to make the whole process transparent.

We are pleased to handle the entire process. We coordinate with you, directly with your veterinarian if you request, Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (KSVDL) for the rabies titer test (FAVN), and the Hawaiian Animal Quarantine Offices so all forms are submitted properly and on time. We make all pet travel arrangements with the airlines, transfers in Honolulu and appointments with veterinarians for direct release on neighbor islands.
