On Feb. 13 The ARK at JFK announced the official opening of its Phase 1 services, which include The ARK Pet Oasis, Equine and Livestock Export Center, and Aviary In-Transit Quarantine.

“The opening of The ARK Pet Oasis, In-Transit Aviary Center, and Equine and Livestock Export Center marks the inaugural opening phase of The ARK at JFK,” said John J. Cuticelli, Jr. CEO, or Racebrook and founder and chairman of ARK Development/The ARK at JFK. “Four years ago, we embarked on this process to address the unmet needs for the import and export of companion, sporting and agricultural animals at JFK International Airport. Transporting live cargo by plane can be a complex and arduous process for owners and animals alike. Our goal is to create a more efficient and safe process by reducing the need for additional travel and offering trained animal care staff immediately pre- and post-flight. The ARK provides a healthy and comfortable environment, and sets new international airport standards for comprehensive veterinary, kenneling and quarantine services.”

Port Authority Aviation Director Thomas L. Bosco added, “The Port Authority is continuously exploring innovative ways to meet our customers’ needs. The ARK is a world-class animal care and comprehensive veterinary service facility, and will be a great addition to JFK – not only for our passengers, but as a driver for the regional economy that will create jobs and generate sales activity.”

For globetrotting horses, the ARK at JFK Equine and Livestock Export Center is a holding and rest area for all equids and livestock departing JFK International Airport. In order to meet the live animal cargo export needs of JFK, ARK Export is equipped with 23 individual 12-foot-by-12-foot’ stalls outfitted with steel-framed open airway front stall doors, non-slip flooring, and high-quality hay and bedding.
