Animal/Pet Policy

The health and safety of Lighthouse staff, faculty, and guests is our top priority. This Animal Policy aims to provide guidelines to create a safe and welcoming environment for all while ensuring compliance with legal requirements regarding service animals.

Service Animals:

  • Lighthouse complies with all applicable laws and regulations regarding service animals under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and any state and local laws. Additional information can be found here.

  • Service animals generally are those that have been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Pets that serve as non-therapeutic companions are not considered service animals, and are not allowed on the premises. 

  • Owners are responsible for the supervision and care (including waste removal) of any service animal brought onto the premises and will be responsible for any property destruction and/or personal injuries caused in whole or in part by the service animal. 

  • Service animals must be under the owner’s control at all times. Any animal must be tethered with its owner, or be able to be controlled by voice, signals, or other effective means at all times. 

  • Any animal that is aggressive, or has a history of aggression towards other people or animals, must be removed from the premises, and will not be allowed to return. 


  • As much as we love all your furry friends, we ask that they be left safely at home.
