Is my SERVICE ANIMAL welcome at the Aquarium?

Trained service dogs are welcome at Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. Personal pets and dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and are not allowed inside the Aquarium. Please be aware of the unique setting of bringing a service animal where live animal collections are held. Some of our animals (like the Clouded leopards) see your animal as a threat or prey, which may cause our animals (or yours) to become agitated. For the safety and well-being of all our animals, the staff that cares for them, your animal, and all patrons please adhere to the following guidelines while viewing the exhibits.
• Keep your dog back away from the Clouded leopard habitat and any open enclosures.
• Do not coax the dog to interact with any animals.
• The dog should be kept with the owner, under control, and restrained on a leash at all times.
• It is not acceptable for your dog to have an accident in the facility.
LLPA reserves the right to ask that any service animal be removed from the building if the safety of any guests or animals is compromised. Thank you for your cooperation in making Loveland Living Planet Aquarium a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone.
