NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP)– Dogs and other animals now have a bathroom of their own at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.
A new pet relief facility has opened in JFK’s Terminal 4, WCBS 880’s Stephanie Colombini reported. It allows service and guide dogs, emotional support animals and pets traveling with their owners to go to the bathroom without having to exit the terminal and go through security again.
The tiny room is marked with a paw print on the door. It’s outfitted with a red fire hydrant and a patch of artificial turf, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported.
A federal regulation says all airports serving more than 10,000 passengers per year must install a pet relief areas in every terminal by this August.
