Pet Policy for the Museum of the Big Bend and Sul Ross State University campus

Animals, including domesticated pets, are not permitted inside any university‐controlled building or stadium, except for those service type animals that are specifically exempted by SRSU policy. Service animals are defined by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) as trained to do work or perform a task for persons with disabilities. The ADA does not recognize comfort or emotional support animals as service animals.

Pets may not be tethered to University buildings, structures, motor vehicles, trees, railings, light poles, benches, posts, or other structures.

Pets must not disrupt others (i.e. noise, odor, squawking, excessive barking, etc.).

Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up mess made by their pet and must display evidence of the proper equipment for such cleaning. Anyone who brings a pet on university‐controlled property assumes all financial responsibility for any damages to property or injury to individuals caused by the animal.
