    Chicago-based carrier United Airlines (NYSE: UAL) said it has opened a new, on-airport kennel facility at its Chicago O´Hare International Airport hub.

    According to United, the kennel provides high-level accommodations and amenities for animals traveling via United´s acclaimed PetSafe service.

    The kennel, which is located inside United´s new cargo facility, has 28 individual enclosures and allows different species of animals traveling with the airline to be held comfortably in separate, ventilated and temperature-controlled areas.

    United said that the O´Hare facility also has a fleet of specially built, temperature-controlled PetSafe vans that the airline uses exclusively to transport pets to and from its Chicago flights as quickly and comfortably as possible.

    United´s Chicago kennel is the third facility of its type that supports the airline´s PetSafe service. United operates similar pet kennel facilities at its Houston and Newark hubs. The Spot Experience the same service partner that provides care at United´s Newark kennel is operating the airline´s Chicago facility.

    Maybe I'll ship myself in a kennel next time. Humans are animals, too, right?
