Keeping of Animals Policy


Home Keeping of Animals Policy

All residents are allowed to keep fish and/or small birds as pets. Animals, such as cats and dogs, are not permitted on HACLA property except when approved by site Management for the following reasons:

  • As a reasonable accommodation for a resident with a disability. The disability and the need for an assistive/companion animal must be verified and documented; or
  • For residents who are 60 years of age or older.

You must receive management approval and complete a Registration and Animal Agreement before bringing the animal into the unit.  Management approval of the animal will be in accordance with the Keeping of Animals Policy.  If you would like to make a request to keep an animal in the unit, please review the policy and agreement below and contact your Management office.
