Building Management does not permit any animals such as dogs, cats, birds or animals of any kind to be brought into, kept in or about the Building (except for service animals), for any reason whatsoever. A service animal is medically necessary and federal laws protect the right of the person to be accompanied by the service animal in public places.
Service Animal Guidelines
Watt Towers welcomes tenants and guests with disabilities who use service animals. Service animals must be allowed to be in all areas where guests are normally permitted.
Service animals are dogs or miniature horses that are individually trained to perform work or tasks for individuals with disabilities. Animals that only provide emotional support or comfort are not service animals.
Service animals do not have to be certified or licensed nor must they wear a harness or vest.
If I am a tenant at Watt Plaza and if I have a service animal, do I have to complete the building management questionnaire and if applicable, the Waiver, Release and Indemnification Agreement?
Yes, the tenant questionnaire and the Waiver, Release and Indemnification Agreement can be accessed by clicking the following link: (Click Here).
When can you exclude a service animal from the building?
- A manager or security guard may ask an individual with a disability to remove a service animal from the building if:
- the animal is out of control and the animal’s handler does not take effective action to control it; or the animal is not housebroken.
- Miniature horses may also be excluded if the facility cannot accommodate the size, weight, or type of miniature horse, OR if the miniature horse’s presence compromises the legitimate safety requirements necessary to operate the building safely.
- If the building excludes an animal, its animal owner must still be allowed to remain in the building.
A Pet Waste Station area is located at the back of the 1875 building, just north of the loading dock (between the 1875 building and the parking structure – photos below).
We encourage all owners of therapy/service dogs who are tenants and guests of the building to visit the pet waste site and utilize the newly designated area. We have provided doggie waste bags as well as a conveniently located trash bin for disposal.
The goal of Building Management is to accommodate our tenants and guests without compromising the integrity of the building, landscaped areas and the overall environment; we anticipate that the Pet Waste Station is utilized and our goal is accomplished. We certainly appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
