Flying your pet can be scary. Cats and dogs alike often display signs of stress and fear. The sounds of the airport, the bustle of other passengers, and the overall confusion can make for a rough flight. However, at JFK airport in NYC, a new facility called The Ark hopes to ease your pet’s stress. The Ark has temporarily housed all kinds of animals: dogs, cats, parrots, turtles, and horses.

When animals are brought to The Ark, a veterinarian performs a checkup on the animal to check for signs of distress or illness before or after a flight. The Ark also has plenty of services available for animals awaiting their flights. For example, horses who may be flying out of the country are fed, given water, and kept calm with soothing music. Before boarding a plane, the horses are weighed and checked over.

The Ark operates 24/7 out of the Cargo Area D area of the airport. Any animals entering the country may stay at The Ark during the mandatory quarantine period and will receive top quality care. Reservations must be made before your pet can stay at The Ark but the facility also takes in emergency situations.
