In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals are welcomed and permitted in all UC San Diego Library facilities. Per ADA, service animals are dogs or miniature horses individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. For details, please see this page. No other animals are permitted.
In regards to a miniature horse, they generally range in height from 24 inches to 34 inches measured to the shoulders and generally weigh between 70 and 100 pounds. Per ADA, size and weight can be factors in determining if the Library is able to accommodate this type of service animal.
In order to help maintain a pleasant, productive, and safe environment for all Library users and staff, the following behavioral guidelines for service animals are to be observed:
NOTE: If a service animal's behaviors or actions pose an unreasonable or direct threat to the health or safety of others, or do not conform to these guidelines, it may not remain in a Library facility. In accordance with ADA guidelines, non-compliance of guidelines can be grounds for a request to remove a service animal from a Library facility. If the service animal is excluded from a Library facility, the individual with the disability is welcomed to stay and will be reasonably accommodated by Library staff.
If you have questions regarding these guidelines, please contact Keith Langford at firstname.lastname@example.org or 858-534-1560.
