Are pets welcome in the zoo?

No. Pets and emotional support animals are not allowed in the zoo. Only fully ADA-trained dogs are allowed in the zoo and must be current on vaccines to access exhibits in the exotic cat loop- i.e. lions, tigers, snow leopards and servals. These animals are susceptible to certain dog diseases that can be prevented only by vaccination. Also ADA-trained dogs will not be allowed near certain animal exhibits (primates) or near ambassador animals while they are out of their exhibits and walking about or being carried through the zoo.
