With many travel assignments, housing will be available for you. Unfortunately, some provided housing setups will not allow pets. Don’t fret, especially in larger cities, it’s easy to find temporary housing on a month-to-month, or temporary basis that will allow you to take your pet with you. Many rentals will charge you a pet fee, or pet deposit. If you choose not to take the housing that is provided for you due to having a pet, a housing stipend is typically provided for you.
When choosing a new travel assignment, you may want to take into consideration how well your pet tolerates travel. If he or she doesn’t tolerate flying, or long car trips, it might be better to consider a new assignment that’s closer, rather than farther. I.e., not driving from California to New Hampshire in several days with a pet in tow. For a pet that doesn’t appreciate travel time between destinations, a move from California to Oregon, or Nevada might be easier.
