Forest Hills Stadium welcomes service animals per the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
As defined by the ADA, a service animal is any dog, such as a guide dog or signal dog, that is individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. This includes psychiatric service animals that are individually trained to provide service to individuals with psychiatric or neurological disabilities, such as preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors.
Service animals must be leashed at all times, unless special circumstances exist, and must rest in the seating area of the individual with a disability, not in the aisle.
If your service animal poses a threat to the safety of other guests and employees, or is not housebroken, you may be asked to escort the animal off the premises.
