2.01.002.005 - Animals on Campus

Approved: 3/28/2013
Approved By: President's Staff
Category: 2 - GENERAL INSTITUTION
Section: 01 - GENERAL
Policy: 002 - Civility

The Community College of Beaver County (CCBC) has chosen to allow employees, students, vendors, and visitors to bring their animals to the College under controlled conditions and on a limited basis as long as the animals can display good citizen skills. The guidelines in this policy must be strictly followed, in order to make the experience a safe and enjoyable one for all concerned. Any violations of these guidelines by an employee, student, vendor, or visitor or the employee's, student’s, vendor’s, visitor’s animal may result in immediate revocation of that individual's and/or animal’s privileges on campus.

Animal owners assume complete liability for their pets. And remember, bringing animals on the College campus is a privilege, not a right.

Non-service animals:

All animals should be relieved outdoors in an out-of-the-way spot some distance from the parking lot and the College buildings, not in grassy areas where people might choose to sit. All waste should be picked up immediately and disposed of in an appropriate receptacle. Animal owners are expected to carry a cleanup kit at all times.

All animals on the College campus should be appropriately socialized and friendly toward people and other animals. Any sign or incident of aggression will result in immediate withdrawal of privileges for that animal. Noisy animals will also not be tolerated. Animals should respond consistently and quickly to basic commands like come, sit, stay, and down.

Animals are to be kept in the owner’s immediate area. All animals must be kept under control by means of a leash when in common areas of the College or parking lot.  If the animal’s owner must leave their animal for any reason, they must either assign a willing individual to be responsible for the animal in their absence or crate the animal. Animals are not allowed in the:

  • Food Preparation area

Animal owners assume complete liability for their pets. And remember, bringing animals on the College campus is a privilege, not a right.

Service Animals:

Employees, students, vendors and visitors first need to request and receive permission from Human Resources (HR) to bring a service animal to the College. HR will consider the employee’s, student’s, vendor’s and visitor’s ability to get his or her work done without being unduly distracted by the pet's needs. HR will consider the effect service animals may have on other employees, students, vendors and visitors both within the department and the immediate work/classroom area. Employees and students take precedence over service animals. Any employee with allergies, fear of service animals, or other legitimate concerns has the right to request that service animals in their area be confined to an office or left at home. The same tolerance expected for service animal acceptance should be acknowledged for service animal concerns.

Service animals are allowed in the workplace and/or classroom and must be at least four months old, spayed or neutered, licensed with the appropriate animal control authority, fully inoculated, clean and well-groomed, and completely free of fleas. Most importantly, service animals must be housetrained. If a service animal has repeated indoor accidents with housetraining, the service animal's workplace privileges will be revoked until it can be shown that the service animal has successfully completed a housetraining program.

Service animals should be relieved outdoors in an out-of-the-way spot some distance from the parking lot and the College buildings, not in grassy areas where people might choose to sit. All waste should be picked up immediately and disposed of in an appropriate receptacle. Service animal owners are expected to carry a cleanup kit at all times.

Service animals, as with all animals, on the College campus should be appropriately socialized and friendly toward people and other service animals. Any sign or incident of aggression will result in immediate withdrawal of privileges for that animal. Noisy service animals will also not be tolerated. Service animals should respond consistently and quickly to basic commands like come, sit, stay, and down.

Service animals are to be kept in the employees', students’, vendor’s and visitor’s immediate work area such as their office, cubicle, or designated workspace. All service and non-service animals must be kept under control by means of a leash when in common areas of the College or parking lot.  If an employee, student, vendor and visitor must leave their animal for any reason, they must either assign a willing coworker and/or student to be responsible for the animal in their absence or crate the animal. Service animals are not allowed in the:

  • Food preparation Area
