In accordance with Washington State law, Everett Recovery Café does not allow pets in the cafe. This includes therapy or emotional support animals.

Only service animals, animals specifically trained to do work or perform a task for persons with disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), are allowed in all spaces open to the general public. Service animals are defined as dogs (of any size) or miniature horses that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities.

If you’re not sure whether or not you have a service animal, there are two questions you can answer to know if your animal fits under the ADA guidelines:

1.    Is this animal required because of a disability?

2.    What work or task/service is the animal trained to do?

Examples of tasks service animals can do: Help with balance or mobility, alert to a condition (either physical or situational), pick up or carry items, remind them to take medication, get help, stabilize them during a seizure, redirect their attention from a trigger.

Café Service Animal Policy

Only service animals are allowed in the Café space. The Member/handler is required to remain in control of their animal at all times, either through voice commands or physical control (a leash). The animal must be house trained and not bark excessively, be disruptive, or act aggressively toward people. If a service animal is determined to be disruptive or misbehaving, and the handler is not taking corrective action, Café staff may ask for the animal to be removed.

Please ask a Café staff member to assist with any questions.
