Service Animals' rights are YOUR Rights
Service Animals cannot be denied access to public accommodations. Their rights are your rights.
Discrimination against persons with disabilities who are assisted by guide, service or signal dogs still exists. The public, in general, is unaware that people and businesses still refuse entry or ask people to leave who are accompanied by their guide, service or signal dogs. When people are told of such acts of discrimination, they are shocked and are in a state of disbelief.
The occurrence of this type of discrimination is not rare. Many people who are refused service are too embarrassed and humiliated to take any action. Some are intimidated. We understand that when you and your service animal are denied access, it is discrimination.
If you have been denied access to a public accommodation because of your service dog or other service animal, contact us to learn about your rights, what you can do, and whether we can help you.
