Policy on Dogs and First UU Church

Only trained service dogs and service dogs-in-training are allowed in the meeting house. According to the ADA, "Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. 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."

Persons who have such a dog will be given a tag that will allow that dog in the Meeting House; no other dogs are allowed inside.  If a person insists that his or her dog is a service animal, the ushers will ask what three tasks the dog is trained to do.  If that question cannot be answered satisfactorily, the dog will not be allowed in.  Anyone who brings a non-service dog to church may enjoy the service outside on the patio, near one of the outdoor speakers.  All dogs must be on a leash.  No dogs except trained service dogs are allowed in Bard Hall when food is being served, due to public health regulations.
