Animals - I-X Center

Animals or pets, except for ADA Service Animals, are not permitted inside the I-X Center unless as an approved activity or exhibit. All animal or pet related activities and/or exhibits require a minimum of three (3) business days advance notice for review and written approval from the Assistant General Manager or designee to be on premises.

Under the ADA, a service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. The ADA makes a distinction between psychiatric service animals and emotional support animals. If the dog has been trained to sense that an anxiety attack is about to happen and take a specific action to help avoid the attack or lessen its impact, that would qualify as a service animal. However, if the dog’s mere presence provides comfort, that would not be considered a service animal under the ADA. An ADA Service Animal has the same right of access and can only be excluded for two reasons:

  1. The animal is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it; or
  2. The animal is not housebroken. The handler would be given the opportunity to attend the event without the service animal.
