$32 Million Animal Facility Coming to JFK

John F. Kennedy International Airport is going to the dogs. And cats. And probably birds and horses.
 
A new $32 million facility that will provide kenneling, grooming and other services for about 70,000 domestic and wild animals a year is going to be built at the airport.

  The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates JFK, approved the plans on Thursday.
 
ARK Development LLC will use Building 78 at the airport, which is currently empty, as well as 14.4 acres of the grounds for the project.
 
It will have kenneling and grooming services for dogs and cats, as well as a quarantine area for horses, an aviary, lawn space, a veterinary hospital and rehabilitation center.
 
Port Authority officials say it will create 190 jobs.
