The Foothill-De Anza Community College District (FHDA) prohibits animals from district-operated buildings, except for therapy animals, service animals necessary for disability access such as guide dogs, and animals required for instructional programs. In addition, while on district-operated property, animals (except as noted above) must be attended and on a leash at all times.
This policy also includes limits for horses and their riders. The walking or riding of horses on either campus except on district-established and marked horse trails is prohibited.
The administration will use reasonable means of enforcement. FHDA Board Policy 1230; Approved 5/4/64; Amended 3/8/72; 6/2/86; 11/15/93; 5/5/08
Adherence to this policy is not optional and presents not only a liability to the district but to the owner as well. By bringing an animal on campus grounds, the individual and/or owner accepts sole financial and legal responsibility for any damage, injury or other harm caused by the animal.
