*Service Animals-Podunk abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and allows service animals — animals trained to perform specific tasks for an individual with a disability — into all public areas. Service animals are required to be under control at all times by their owners by being harnessed, leashed or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the animal’s work or the owner’s disability. In such cases, the owner must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal or other effective controls. The owner of a service animal may be asked to remove the animal from the premises if the owner does not take effective action to control it or if the animal is not housebroken. If the animal’s behavior warrants its removal from Podunk, the animal’s handler may continue their visit without the animal. Podunk abides by the ADA regarding the admission of service animals based on their ability to perform a specific task. Animals regarded as comfort animals, therapy animals, companion animals or emotional support animals are not service animals as defined by the ADA, and therefore, they are not allowed at Podunk.
