It shall be unlawful for any person to permit, allow, keep or carry any animal in, upon or within a public transportation facility, or any other public building or facility, particularly a building or facility in which food or drink is prepared or stored, except that a blind person shall not be denied the use of any common carrier or public transportation facility or admittance to any other public building or place within the City by reason of his being accompanied by a seeing eye or guide dog specially trained for such purpose. It is the intent of this section to permit and authorize a blind person to have a seeing eye or guide dog with him or her in such places and while using such facilities without being required to pay any additional charges for his seeing eye or guide dog, but such blind person shall be liable for any damage or disturbance caused by such seeing eye or guide dog.
