SERVICE ANIMALS

Law Information Card

What is the Law Information Card?

Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits places of public accommodation from requiring proof of certification of a service animal/service dog's training. There are similar provisions in other federal laws that apply to commercial air travel, state and local governmental agencies, including public transportation, and other entities. When federal and state or local law conflict, the law which gives greater protection to the person with disabilities prevails.

The National Service Dog Center now has available a card that explains what service animals/service dogs are and the laws that affect service animals/service dogs in public places. If you are denied access to a public place, showing this card can be a more effective option than saying, "Hey, you have to let my service dog and me into your store!"
