Pet and Animal Relief Areas at U.S. Airports - Pet Friendly Airports

As of 2009 the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires all airlines make sure there are pet relief areas at airports, and escorts to those relief areas, for any passenger traveling with a service animal. As a result, airports everywhere have created and expanded animal relief areas that are open to all pets as well as service animals.

Currently, most animal relief areas at airports are located outside the secure area. Click on the map below for locations of animal relief areas at U.S. airports.
