May I bring my service animal?
Thinkery welcomes service animals – other animals or pets are not allowed except as part of museum programs.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a service animal as a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability.
When it is not obvious what service an animal provides, Thinkery staff will ask two questions: (1) is the animal a service animal required because of a disability, and (2) what work or task has the animal been trained to perform.
The animal must be housebroken, non-threatening, and under the handler’s control. If the animal becomes aggressive or threatens the health and safety of others, Thinkery staff will require the removal of the animal from the museum.
According to ADA, dogs or therapy animals whose function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals, even with a doctor’s note, and will not be allowed in the museum.
I have another question. Who can I ask?
