    Animals can distract students and cause health and safety problems. Therefore, no animals, with the exception of Assistance Animals as defined in ORS 346.680, and other animals which are used for approved instructional purposes, are permitted on College grounds.

    1. Owners of authorized animals are required to adhere to any local, state and federal animal laws including but not limited to:
      1. An authorized animal must be kept under control at all times, whether by leash or cage.
      2. The animal’s owner or the responsible person must ensure that the animal relieves itself in an appropriate area and must clean up after the animal and dispose of the waste properly. Any indoor accident must be cleaned up immediately.
      3. The animal’s owner must comply with all state and city laws and ordinances governing the animal’s license and vaccinations and have proof of compliance available when on College grounds.
    If the animal’s behavior is disruptive to College programs, activities or services, poses a threat to the health and/or safety of others or displays threatening behavior, the animal must be removed from College grounds.
