Animal Relief Areas

BWI Marshall Airport travelers who are accompanied by service or other domestic animals can enjoy the convenience of four pet relief areas while at the airport – two are pre- security and two are post-security.

Pre-Security Post-Security

One Pet Relief Area is located prior to Concourse E on the lower level outside door #19, near the international terminal and adjacent to the Light Rail station.

The second Pet Relief Area can be found in front of the Hourly Garage. It can be accessed three ways:

  • From Concourse B, use the B skywalk to access the Hourly Garage, take the Tower B elevator down to Level 3 (marked “3”). Follow the white lined path to the right and look for a concrete wall opening and red awning overhead on the right-hand side. The paver pathway leads to the pet relief area.
  • From Concourse D, use the D skywalk to access the Hourly Garage, take the Tower D elevator down to Level 3 (marked “3”). Follow the white lined path to the left and look for a concrete wall opening and red awning overhead on the left-hand side. The paver pathway leads to the pet relief area.
  • From Concourse C, take the center elevator down to the Tunnel level (marked “T”). Follow the tunnel to the Hourly Garage. Take the Tower C elevator up to Level 3 (marked “3”). Follow the white lined path to the right and look for a concrete wall opening and red awning overhead on the right-hand side. The paver pathway leads to the pet relief area.

We offer two pet relief areas post-security. One is located at the beginning of Concourse C and the other in the connector between concourses D and E, just beyond the Concourse D/E Security Checkpoint.

Seating is available in all pet relief areas. Owners are asked to clean up after their animals using the waste disposal bags and receptacles provided.

Pet Relief Area

Non-Service Pets

Non-service pets are not permitted in the terminal building unless destined for air transport and restrained in a container at all times.

Service Dogs & TSA

TSA passenger screening canine teams may be operationally deployed at the airport, especially near checkpoints. The canines are working animals that are trained to detect traces of explosives concealed on passengers or their belongings. Passengers traveling with pets are asked to use a checkpoint where the working dogs are not assigned at a particular time. Passengers traveling with service animals may continue to use the checkpoint with working dogs.
