Control of Animals on St. George's University Property

 The University has the responsibility to provide a safe, healthy, positive, learning environment.  The uncontrolled and unsupervised presence of animals on campus compromises that environment.  This policy establishes and fixes the responsibility with the owner of the animal and sets forth the manner in which the conditions of the policy will be administered.

  • 1.                  All animals on University property, including athletic fields, playing fields and intramural areas, must be leashed and under personal control of the owner at all times.  They are not be tied or secured to trees, posts, shrubs, etc., and left unattended.
  • 2.                  Animals are not permitted in any buildings.  Exceptions are seeing eye dogs, service dogs, campus security dogs, animals under care and treatment in the Veterinary Medicine Complex, research animals housed in University buildings, or animals used as part of an academic program.
  • 3.                  All animals on campus must have current vaccinations evidenced by a tag on the animal or the vaccination certificate in the possession of the owner.
  • 4.                  Animals picked up because they are running loose or unattended will be taken to the GSPCA Building where they will be retained for 72 hours.  If not claimed and expenses paid by that time, appropriate disposition of the animal will take place.
  • 5.                  The owner/caregiver must clean any urine or feces produced by the pet while in buildings or anywhere on campus.
  • 6.                  Areas must be approved in advance by the University Veterinarian for unloading and exercising or tethering of animals.
