Service Animals


Persons with disabilities are permitted to bring their service animals onto any part of the premises that is open to the public, except where the animal is otherwise excluded by law. It is recognized that service animals are used for persons with a variety of disabilities; including those who are blind, hearing impaired or suffer from seizure disorders. When an animal is brought into our facilities, if it is not readily apparent, staff should seek to clarify if the animal is a service animal before the client is advised that pets are not permitted on the premises.

Service Animals are highly-trained working animals that help provide mobility, safety and increased independence for persons with disability. It is the responsibility of the client to attend to the needs of the service animal while on WoodGreen premises. Staff must avoid petting, talking to or feeding the service animal without the permission of the person with a disability.
