 Therapy Animals: Animals that are trained to be in groups of people, serve in hospitals or during stress relieving events on campus. Therapy animals cannot live anywhere, and can only be in public with special permission.

 Service Dogs: Can live anywhere and can be in public. They’re classified as medical equipment in the eyes of the law.  Dogs and miniature ponies are the only animals allowed to be service animals in public.
