New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport announced today that it will now have a bathroom in the terminal just for pets, allowing four-legged passengers to do their business without having to go outside. The small room comes complete with a red fire hydrant and a patch of artificial turf.

Pet relief facilities will soon roll out across the country. A federal regulation said that all airports serving more than 10,000 passengers a year must install a designated area in every terminal by this August. They’re already up and functioning at Dulles International in Washington D.C., Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, and Seattle-Tacoma International.
