McCarran International Airport has a total of seven pet relief areas—a surprisingly high number for a relatively small airport. Three are located inside and post-security, and four are located outside and pre-security. The post-security locations are situated at the entrance to the Terminal 1 A/B/C Concourse area, in the Terminal 1 D Concourse area, and in Terminal 3. The outdoor areas are just outside of Terminal 1 Baggage Claim, outside Terminal 1 Ticketing, and outside of Terminal 3. Per airport pet policy, all McCarran pet relief stations include waste disposal bags, fake fire hydrants, and enclosed spaces.

What to Expect from the Las Vegas Airport Pet Relief Stations

The outdoor Las Vegas pet relief areas are nothing to write home about, but they do the job. These pre-security areas feature gravel, a chain-link fence, and waste bag dispensers. However, pet parents should take note—the Terminal 1 outdoor stations are not easy to find, as they are located near traffic at the ticketing area. 


Post-security pet restrooms are close to airline gates for easy access. Each indoor area features pet-friendly synthetic grass and an ornamental fire hydrant. They also offer disposable bags and a sink for washing hands. The facility is equipped with a built-in cleaning system that flushes water and a cleaning solution underneath the turf to ensure freshness at any time of day. The custodial staff cleans these areas daily, and a ventilation system vacuums the air around ten times per hour.
