Has anyone received compensation or transportation OCONUS for a dog?

Please settle an argument between my father in law and myself. Specifically Hawaii if it makes a difference.

We just moved from Alaska. We took the ferry which has a $75 pet fee and we had to pay out of pocket.

We are moving to HI next week, and with two dogs it was gonna cost us around $8000 out of pocket for transportation and quarantine (in Hawaii there is 4 month quarantine required..some exceptions). And no, the military will not reimburse a dime.

 Nope- we just moved to Spain and spent close to 400$ to fly our dog.

Good god!!
That's alot of money.

We live in Germany and I decided to leave my dog with my mom so I have no info on the transport. My dog would have lost her mind on a plane.
