The Canine Crew is comprised of four-legged volunteers who greet passengers at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT).
From a tiny Pomeranian to a giant Mastiff, dog teams provide canine comfort and support for travelers. The Canine Crew welcomes passengers and creates an engaging airport experience. Want to make a new furry friend? Just look for the Canine Crew! Dogs wear a blue 'Pet Me’ vest and handlers wear a blue CLT Canine Crew t-shirt for easy identification.
Since the program’s inception in 2015, the Canine Crew has grown in size and popularity. Dog teams love to pose for photographs with passengers and make special appearances at airport events.
*Dog teams consist of a handler and their registered, professional therapy dog. The airport does not provide dogs for individual volunteers to work with.
*Please note* Program is currently suspended due to COVID-19.
