The university is not responsible for the care or supervision of a service, therapy, or emotional support animal. Individuals with disabilities are responsible for the control of their service, therapy, or emotional support animals at all times and must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including vaccination, licensure, animal health, and leash laws. With respect to leash laws, a service, therapy, or emotional support animal shall be restrained with a harness, leash, or other tether, unless an individual’s disability precludes the use of a restraint or if the restraint would interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of work or tasks. If a service, therapy, or emotional support animal is not tethered, it must be otherwise under the individual’s control, whether by voice control, signals, or other effective means.
