That would depend on their age, so check with your vet for the age-appropriate vaccination schedule.

I don't know who mentioned that, but Pilots N Paws does not require any vaccinations~~they do require a health certificate stating the animal has been vaccinated according the rules set by the sending & receiving states. I suppose a pilot might request a bordatella be given, but I've never run in to that situation.
We suggest that you look at the government rules for each state fro travel requirements from state to state.

Licensed Veterinarians are the only ones who can issue a health certificate and it is up to the sending and or receiving rescue or shelter to make certain one is provided.
