How to send a dog from Puerto Rico to USA?

As Puerto Rico is a part of the US its not as complicated as it could be. You can read here that shelters do this
Dogs coming in usually need a rabies shot and the airlines usually require a health certificate.
But you may need to check with the specific state the dog is going to be arriving in as states such as MA have specific rules on this
I would contact the state veterinarians office in the state you intend to arrive to be sure about local regulations
Hope this helps you!
