All About Animals

As traveling can create stress and anxieties at airports, the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUP) program is an opportunity to provide an overall enhanced customer experience, providing stress relief and comfort to passengers through interaction with pets. The PUPs are the volunteers “own” dogs, and both donate their time to LAX. They are registered with Alliance of Therapy Dogs. We welcome you to visit, hug, kiss and take pictures with the PUPs when traveling through LAX. We welcome you sending in any pictures or posting them on our Facebook page. For information on the program please contact Heidi Huebner at 424-646-8471 or email hhuebner@lawa.org

At LAX we love pets, but it is important to check with your airline about the rules and procedures for safely traveling with them. All information about pet carriers, limits on the number and types of animals allowed in airline cabins, and picking up animals at baggage claim areas should be provided by your airline.
