The Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport has seven animal relief areas—the second highest number of areas for a U.S. airport. There are relief stations on every concourse. These Atlanta airport pet relief areas are found near Gates T7, A10, B33, C19, E14, F7, as well as D-Midpoint.
The ATL airport also houses two outdoor dog parks: Poochie Park, a 1,000 square-foot dog park in the Ground Transportation area (on Domestic Terminal South), and an additional pet relief area on the Arrivals level of the International Terminal.

What to Expect from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport Pet Relief Stations
Until 2016, Hartsfield-Jackson had only two pet relief areas—they were outdoors and in pre-security areas. In early 2016, the federal government issued a rule saying airports with 10,000 or more passengers boarding planes annually would need to provide wheelchair-accessible animal relief areas for service animals. Hartsfield-Jackson took this rule to heart, implementing five new indoor, wheelchair-accessible animal relief areas in two years.
ATL pet relief areas are equipped with pet supplies and concrete or grassy turf areas, as well as a ground-level drinking fountain for pups ill-equipped to handle the Georgia heat. Biodegradable pet waste bags and an overhead shower hose are available for easy clean-up. Indoor Atlanta pet relief areas are outfitted with antimicrobial, seamless, and stain/slip-resistant floors and additional sinks for pet parents to freshen up.
The outdoor dog parks are fully fenced-in, allowing your pet to play freely without the risk of escape. The outdoor relief area on the arrivals level of the International Terminal is relatively small, but Poochie Park is the largest airport dog amenity in the country.
