Service Animals - Updated and effective March 15, 2011
Service animal means any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not service animals for the purposes of this definition. The work or tasks performed by a service animal must be directly related to the individual's disability. Examples of work or tasks include, but are not limited to, assisting individuals who are blind or have low vision with navigation and other tasks, alerting individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing to the presence of people or sounds, providing non-violent protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, assisting an individual during a seizure, alerting individuals to the presence of allergens, retrieving items such as medicine or the telephone, providing physical support and assistance with balance and stability to individuals with mobility disabilities, and helping persons with psychiatric and neurological disabilities by preventing or interrupting impulsive or destructive behaviors. The crime deterrent effects of an animal's presence and the provision of emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship do not constitute work or tasks for the purposes of this definition.
The COLT Paratransit Service offers door-to-door transportation services within Loveland ’s Growth Management Area (GMA) for individuals over the age of 60, and individuals whose physical and/or mental disabilities PREVENT them from using regular fixed route service. This service is available from 6:38 AM to 6:37 PM Monday-Friday and from 8:48 AM to 5:37 PM on Saturdays. There is no service on Sundays. Our goal is to provide independence and mobility for those who might otherwise be socially isolated. For information about COLT Paratransit, call (970) 962-2700.
