Service animals are welcome in the City-County Building. A service animal is a dog that is individually trained to perform tasks for person with a disability. A service animal must be harnessed, leashed or tethered unless these devices interfere with the service animal's work. If your disability prevents you from using a harness, leash or tether, you must maintain control of your service animal through voice, signal or other effective controls.

Security may ask you if you need your dog because of disability as well as what tasks the dog  is trained to perform. Miniature horses trained as service animals will be considered on an individual basis for entrance into the building. If a service animal is not housebroken or is disruptive, it will not be permitted into the building.
