Pet and Service Animal Relief Areas

The MSP maintains pet and service animal relief areas at both terminals.

There are several Terminal 1 locations. Pre-security, there are pet relief areas located outside both Door 1 and Door 4 on the Baggage Claim Level. There is also a new pet relief area outside of the Silver Parking Ramp. 

Through security at Terminal 1, there are three pet relief areas available: located near the entrance to Concourse E in the Airport Mall, by Gate F6, and on the C/G Connector Bridge. 

At Terminal 2, travelers can use the grassy area just outside of Door 8 on Level 1 near baggage claim or the indoor pet relief area near Gate H11.

Passengers traveling with a service animal can request an escort from their airline or Travelers Assistance to the pet relief area.

Pet and Animal Policies

All non-service animals must be kept kenneled while in the airport's facilities.
