Construction of new pet 'resort' starts at Austin-Bergstrom

Construction of new parking facilities, including a new pet resort, has begun at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA).

The new parking services Park & Zoom and Bark & Zoom are being developed and operated by Scott Airport Parking, a local Austin business.

“Scott Airport Parking brings a welcome new service to AUS, pet boarding, in addition to more parking spaces,” said Jim Smith, executive director of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. 

“We are pleased to be in a partnership to help bring these new amenities to our travellers.”
Park & Zoom will provide 2,000 new, covered parking spaces on the airport and, according to the Texas gateway,  "bring one-stop convenience to travellers who need someone to take care of their pets while they are away."`

Pets will have access to outdoor play yards, a pet pool, and dog and cat grooming in this newly designed state-of-the-art pet resort.

Bark & Zoom will be conveniently located on five acres near the entrance to the airport, on the north side of IH-71at Presidential Blvd.

Its services will be available to the general public, not just those traveling through ABIA. 

The pet resort will be managed by the Taurus Academy, an Austin “home grown” company with more than 20 years of experience in the pet care and training industry. 

Optional training services will be offered during their stay by Taurus Academy.

Both Park & Zoom and Bark & Zoom are anticipated for completion in summer 2016.
