Airport to offer boarding, grooming and veterinary care services


Multi-million dollar facility will help traveling pets and wild animals.

Over the years, air travel has become more accommodating to pets, from a dog-friendly airline and now to animal care facilities at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

According to CBS New York, JFK is going to the dogs. And cats. And probably birds and horses. A new $32 million facility that will provide kenneling, grooming, and other services for about 70,000 domestic and wild animals a year is going to be built at the airport.

The facilities will use a building that is currently empty, as well as 14.4 acres of the grounds for the project. It will have kenneling and grooming services for dogs and cats, as well as a quarantine area for horses, an aviary, lawn space, a veterinary hospital and rehabilitation center. Port Authority officials say it will create 190 jobs. Officials said the new setup would be larger than animal facilities that are currently in use at the airports in Los Angeles and Miami.
