Travel With Pets
- European Guide Dog Federation
EGDF welcomes organisations and individuals to join them in their mission by becoming a member organisation or a supporter.
A member organisation is any legally constituted organisation involved in the provision of guide dogs or assistance dogs which subscribes to the applicable international standards and/or represents the interests of European guide dog owners and which: applies to EGDF on the approved form; has aims that in no way contravene those of the federation; is approved by the board or the membership committee; and pays the relevant subscription. A supporter is an individual or an organisation directly or indirectly concerned with guide dogs who/which supports the objects and wishes to be associated with EGDF but does not have the right to vote at general meetings. Having supporters throughout Europe strengthens the voice of guide dog owners and providers.
- Movement of Pets
The adoption of harmonised rules on travelling with pets has made it easier for EU citizens and their dogs, cats or ferrets to enjoy the freedom of movement within the Union. This significant step was made possible by dramatic advances made in the fight against rabies. For movement between EU countries or from non-EU countries vaccination against rabies documented in the pet passport or the animal health certificate is the sole requirement for dogs, cats and ferrets to travel across EU borders, with certain exceptions.
