Definition of Service Animals
Service dogs are individually trained to perform some of the functions and tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability in accordance with ADAA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Tasks may include, but are not limited to, guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders or sounds, pulling a wheelchair, or retrieving dropped items. A service dog is permitted to accompany a person with a disability everywhere on campus except in situations where safety may be compromised, due to chemicals, living organisms, or health and safety issues. Dogs that are not trained to perform tasks that mitigate the effects of a disability, including dogs that are used purely for emotional support, are not considered service animals and are not allowed on the LLCC premises.
