Georgia lifts livestock permit requirements ahead of Irma

Animal Interstate Movement Health Requirements for entry into Georgia are temporarily suspended for the transportation of animals from areas expected to be impacted by Hurricane Irma in Florida. The suspension of entry requirements applies to animals entering Georgia from Florida only. 

On September 5, 2017, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Division of Animal Industry, announced a temporary suspension of intrastate movement requirements for transportation of animals from the areas expected to be impacted by Hurricane Irma.
Any person transporting pets or livestock from Florida must stop at the agricultural interdiction stations and present any required movement documentation. A transporter that fails to provide the required documentation will be issued an Advisory Notice, which must remain with the livestock during transport from Florida and upon the return trip to the original Florida destination.
In an effort to facilitate the anticipated evacuation efforts in Florida, the Georgia Department of Agriculture has temporarily suspended Interstate Movement Animal Health Requirements for animals wishing to enter Georgia from Florida.
When evacuating, it is important for livestock owners to be prepared to care for their animals while they are away. Please be sure to bring the following items with you:

This suspension is temporary and will expire on September 30, 2017, unless it is rescinded or extended.
