Many individuals with disabilities use a service animal in order to fully participate in everyday life. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), with guidance published through the Department of Justice (DOJ), continue to answer questions on service animals in public places. The ADA requires that state and local government agencies, businesses, and non profit organizations that provide goods or services to the public to make “reasonable modifications” in their policies, practices or procedures to accommodate individuals with disabilities. Many states have broadened the ADA, so it is important to be compliant to both the ADA and your local policies.
