Animals are not permitted in college owned or controlled facilities except service animals, animals performing a support function to law enforcement agencies, or animals approved by the president or designee. Animals that fail to meet the following conditions may be permanently or temporarily banned from campus:
(1) Animals shall be leashed or under the direct physical control of their handlers.
(2) Animal handlers are responsible to clean up after their animal.
(3) Animals that exhibit inappropriate social behavior such as:
(a) The animal is sick, unclean or malodorous; or
(b) The animal's behavior is disruptive, e.g., barking, growling, running loose, displaying aggressive behavior; or
(c) The animal does not meet all applicable city or county ordinances or requirements.
(4) If such circumstances or behaviors persist, college officials may direct the handler not to bring the animal onto campus. The handler may remain on campus and participate in activities, but the animal will not be allowed to return unless or until the issues have been resolved.
