According to the National Council on Pet Population and Study, "moving" is the number one reason dogs are surrendered to shelters and the number three reason for cats. Pet owners who might otherwise think they need to give their pet up when faced with a move can visit http://www.petsmartcharities.org/blog/apartment-hunting-with-your-pet for more information.

If you are planning a move with U-Haul, follow these tips to get your furry friends there safely and comfortably.

Keep your pet safe: Friends, family and moving helpers are usually a part of every move, and all the extra commotion may distress your pets. They may hide in unexpected spots, creating a tripping hazard or...even worse…they may try to dart out the door. Consider boarding your pets on the day of the move or confining them to their favorite room in the house.

Have your pet ride shotgun: Depending on your pet, you may be able to have your companion ride shotgun with you to your new home. Just as it's important for you to buckle up, the same applies to your pet. Most pet stores carry seatbelt adapters to fit your dog. You can use a crate or kennel for a cat or other small animals. Make sure the carriers are secured and carefully positioned so they won't be disturbed during the move.

NOTE: DO NOT transport animals in the cargo area of U-Haul equipment.  U-Haul moving vans and trailers are not designed for transporting animals and do not provide proper ventilation and airflow.  It is a violation of the rental agreement to transport any animals in the back of U-Haul moving vans or in U-Haul trailers.

Welcome your pet home: Finally, there will be an adjustment time for your pet once you arrive at your new home or apartment. With new rooms and smells to explore, your pet may become frightened or stressed. Show them where their new "bathroom" is located. Give them extra attention with play time and by staying home with them for a few days after the move, if possible. Empty moving boxes also can be amusing toys for both cats and dogs. Don't believe us? Check it out this video here:  Dogs, cats and boxes.

U-Haul and PetsMart want you and your pets to have the best moving experience possible. Keep these moving tips in mind...and for all your other moving needs visit your local U-Haul center or dealership, go online at www.uhaul.com or contact U-Haul Reservations at 1-800-GO-UHAUL.
