Animals - Pets & Service Animals
For health and safety reasons, pets are NOT permitted at Gulf Wars. Please make arrangements for your pets elsewhere. Individuals who bring unapproved animals to Gulf Wars will have two options. One will be to find boarding arrangements off-site for their pets. The second option will be to leave with no refund. Service animals are permitted, see below for further info.
As of March 2011, ADA defines Service Animals as dogs (or miniature horses in specific cases) that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA (www.ADA.gov; 2011).
We request that all service animals be pre-registered and their owner/handler contact the Special Needs Coordinator and/or Animal Control upon arrival on site.
Owner/handler must have a copy of their Rabies certificate with their Vet's name, address and phone number at Troll for registration. Rabies tags will not be accepted as proof of vaccination.
Service animals will not be left unattended at any time. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls (www.ADA.gov). If the animal's behavior is disruptive or destructive, or an individual does not maintain control of the service animal, you will be asked to remove it from the premises. Each service animal owner/handler must sign a waiver.
All owners/handlers of non-service animals must be pre-registered and contact the appropriate department head.
Tokens will be issued to each animal as they are trolled in and it is to be worn at all times.
