Yes. There is a satellite quarantine station located on the east side of Hawaii Island in Keaau (Near Hilo), about a 2-hr drive from Kona. It is a privately run business with excellent facilities for your pets. Both of Penn’s Dogs were quarantined here in 2001 for 30-days. The 4-lbs ‘Tiki’ lost prior to travel was quickly regained (and then some) after discovering avocados from the tree located in the quarantine courtyard!
*You must make arrangements with them directly, well ahead of time.

If your pet is being quarantined at a satellite kennel, your pet must first go to the Animal Quarantine Station on Oahu for positive identification and examination. Pets usually stay in Honolulu for at least two* days before being transferred. (* Due to a limited number of inter-island flights, pets arriving on Thursday or Friday may not be transferred until the following Monday.)
Owners must pay fees to the Animal Quarantine Station prior to the pet being transferred to the satellite facility. In addition, owners are responsible to pay for fees charged by satellite facilities. ($120-day quarantine costs – approximately $136, plus satellite station fees).
