To our guests with service dogs:
Zoosiana does not allow pets or outside animals to visit the
facility, other than service dogs as defined by the Americanís with Disabilities Act (ADA):
Service animals are defined as dogs that
are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with
Zoosiana gladly welcomes all guests to the zoo, including guests
requiring service dogs.
While human guests are encouraged to visit all areas of our facility in
compliance with our regular rules and expectations posted throughout the
facility, we ask that your service dog adhere to these additional requests:
LIMITED ACCESS AREAS
As apex predators, the
large cats do not respond favorably to an unfamiliar animal. Please do not
linger in these areas or attempt to draw attention to your service dog. Our apex
predators include lions, tigers, and leopards.
Two particular species at
our facility are sensitive to unfamiliar animals. We ask that service dogs pass
through these areas without lingering. These include the giraffe and
RESTRICTED ACCESS AREAS
For the safety of our
guests and resident animals, service dogs are restricted from visiting certain
areas. These include our interactive exhibits: ZooLive Animal Show in the Zootorium,
Parakeet Feeding Station, waterfowl aviary, Giraffe Feeding Station, and
Petting Zoo Barn.
We are glad to have you visit our facility today, and we know you care for your
service dog as much as we care for our animals, so please be sure to keep your
service dog under your complete control during your visit and to not allow the dog
to cause any distress to our animals.
Finally, we appreciate your understanding that our intentions with these
requests are to ensure the safety of all humans and well being of all animals,
including yours, here at the zoo. Thank you!
