Traveling with Pets

We know how important it is to take care of your furry ones, so we have options for them, both inside and outside the terminal.
  • In the terminal: All pets must be in their travel carriers when in the Main Terminal building. The only exception is training/service dogs and other specially trained pets assisting travelers with disabilities.
  • Inside pet relief area: The pet relief area behind security, is located across from Hudson News, just before the Concourse B exit. 
  • Outside pet relief areas: There are two locations outside the Main Terminal that are equipped to serve as "pet potties" for traveling animals. The two areas are located outside of Baggage Claim on both the north and south ends. On the south end of Baggage Claim (outside door #00) there is a large grassy area at the end of the parking lot that is also equipped with bags for cleanup.

    The north area is outside of door #26, just past Carousel 16. It is a small sandy area to the left under the stairs.

Picking up or shipping pets or other live animals

If a traveling passenger has checked in a live animal as baggage, it can be picked up at baggage claim. Passengers should contact their airline directly for further information. If a live animal has been shipped unaccompanied, the animal can be picked up at Sea-Tac's air cargo facilities. Customers should contact their specific freight carrier for more information.
