for creatures great and small

Taking animal transport
to new heights for our feathered
and four-legged fliers...

What is The ARK at JFK?

The ARK at JFK provides pre- and post-travel animal care and veterinary services for pets, horses, birds, livestock and exotic animals in a competent and compassionate manner. The ARK provides an efficient, safe and low stress environment for both our human and animal clients.

Located off of the runway at JFK International Airport in Cargo Area D, we provide 24/7 access to and from a state-of-the-art, climate-controlled facility, enabling the safe handling and efficient delivery of horses, pets, birds and livestock by air. Animals are moved from jets directly into ARK branded transport vehicles and taken to The ARK where they receive immediate care or begin required quarantine. Regardless of the duration of stay, all animals are looked after by accredited veterinary staff and highly-trained and caring handlers, with processes developed under guidance from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.
