While SECNY FCU recognizes the important role of pets in our lives, it is also concerned with the health, safety, security, and liability issues for all employees and members. The presence of pets in the credit union is discouraged for any longer than a brief visit. All animals must be either held or leashed by the owner and must be appropriately trained. It is the responsibility of the owner to attend to and clean up any mess that may occur on credit union property. An employee or member who requires the help of a service animal (as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act) will be permitted to bring a service animal into the credit union, provided the animal’s presence does not create a danger to others.
For safety reasons, any animal that exhibits aggressive behavior within the credit union toward its owner, member, or employee will no longer be welcome at the credit union.
