Austin Galano Club Policies 

Here are the current Board approved policies.

Service Animal Policy

Our goal is to ensure a safe, comfortable, and accommodating environment for all our guests, including those with disabilities who rely on the assistance of service animals.

Service Animals Only: The Austin Galano Club only allows service animals on the property.   Service animals include dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Please note that emotional support animals and pets do not qualify as service animals. Service animals are welcome to all areas of the Galano Club where guests are allowed. 

 

Behavior Standards: All service animals must be kept on a leash or working harness and be under the control of a handler at all times. If the service animal is not leashed, harnessed, or causes disruptions, the handler may be asked to remove the service animal from the property temporarily and/or permanently. The handler is responsible for any injuries, damages, or disturbances caused by the animal.

 

Identification of Service Animals: While not required, we appreciate if service animals can be identified through a vest, ID card, or other indicators. This helps our club manager and volunteers recognize the service animal. If you have any questions or need assistance regarding our service animal policy, please do not hesitate to contact us at (512) 765-5405 or info@austingalano.org
