Southbury Land Trust Pet Policy

The Trustees of the Southbury Land Trust voted to permit only pets that are leashed on all SLT properties. This decision is a result of many factors and considerations such as: occasional complaints to SLT office and town Dog Warden of unruly or threatening dogs off leash, for-profit field training of hunting dogs on Platt Farm, avoidance of disturbance of plants and animals and their habitat as per SLT mission and DEP guidelines, safety of the public’s pets amidst active agriculture, hazards of animal waste, Town of Southbury ban on pets in parks and the Connecticut State Park’s leash laws.
