Service Animals

< Back to Resources

Service are dogs trained to perform many important tasks to assist people with disabilities, such as providing stability for a person who has difficulty walking, picking up items for a person who uses a wheelchair, preventing a child with autism from wandering away, or alerting a person who has hearing loss when someone is approaching from behind. Knowing the definition of a service animal, how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to service animals, and your rights when using a service animal are very important. This page is designed to provide you with resources about service animals.
