Bring your therapy dog to MSP to delight travelers, reduce stress, and enhance the overall airport experience! MSP Animal Ambassadors is one of the largest programs of its kind in the country and a treasured part of the MSP Airport community.

In addition to working shifts at petting stations in the terminals, our Animal Ambassadors also participate in airport educational programs, outreach activities, and events.

To volunteer at the airport, all therapy animals and handlers must hold current certification with either Pet Partners or Alliance of Therapy Dogs. Therapy animals must be privately owned by the handler for at least three months, be at least one year old, and have at least one visit in the past three months with you as a therapy team. Teams are asked to work a minimum of two shifts per month, and shifts are typically two hours.
