Top 5 Pet-Friendly Airports in the U.S.
As more and more people travel with their pets, airports the world over are creating pet-friendly spaces to make what can be a stressful journey a bit easier. If you’re traveling with your fur kids this summer, call Sunset Veterinary Clinic to schedule a checkup you’re completely prepared for traveling with your pet—and we hope you get to experience the following 5 airports going the extra mile for pets:
Will Rogers World Airport, Oklahoma City—Lucky for you and your pet, our own WRWA is very pet friendly. There’s a grassy pet relief area secured by a white picket fence just outside Baggage Claim 1. You can let your dog run, and they have cleanup supplies at the ready.
Denver International—Each concourse has its own private pet restroom, as well as an outdoor pet run before security. They even have a luxury pet resort called “Paradise 4 Paws” with massage therapy, TVs, obedience training, private suites and a veterinarian.
Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson—In addition to multiple pet relief areas, they have a fully-fenced, 1000-square-foot dog park for running, playing and doing business (complete with biodegradable cleanup supplies).
New York JFK—Right now they have a private pet potty next to the human restrooms in Terminal 4, but they have a big future planned for traveling pets: a $48 million pet terminal that will include boarding, a veterinary clinic, spa, grooming, obedience training and even horse stalls!
If you’re not flying into or out of any of these airports, then here are some others with a great reputation for serving pets: Detroit, Reno-Tahoe, Philadelphia International, Phoenix Sky Harbor, Washington Dulles and San Diego. Regardless of your departure and destination locations, visit with your Sunset Veterinary Clinic veterinarian a few weeks before traveling, and call your airports ahead of time to find out what amenities and relief stations are available so there won’t be any unpleasant surprises. Safe and happy traveling!
