Added On April 14, 2019

 Now turning to New York, where JFK International Airport welcomed two special greeters for National Pet Day.

To mark National Pet Day that fell on April 11th, JFK International Airport set up a temporary home in its concourse for two dogs - Aiden and Tucker.
The two dogs are special ambassadors for the ARK at JFK, the animal care and quarantine facility at the airport.
At the event, passengers and terminal staff alike enjoyed petting these lovely pups.
The ARK at JFK said that this event was to tell travelers that the airport encourages them to have an enjoyable flight with their pets.

"We're also going to walk around and talk to some of the passengers. Let them have the dogs to provide a little bit of comfort and uplift through their day."
