quarantine law is designed to protect residents and pets

requirements may qualify for 5-day–or-less quarantine

“Checklist For 5-Day-Or-Less Program” for details.)
Furthermore, the law requires dogs and cats not meeting all
of the specific 5-Day-Or-Less program requirements to be
quarantined for up to 120 days upon arrival In Hawaii. (See
“Hawaii Rabies Quarantine Information Brochure” for
details on 120-day quarantine.)

and cats and hybrids such as wolf, wolf cross, Dingo,
