Service Animal Law and Discrimination Facts

Service animals are those animals that have been specially trained to help people with disabilities. They are also called “support animals” or “assistance animals”. Besides assisting people with disabilities, service animals may be utilized for Search and Rescue (SAR) operations and the law enforcement agencies. Although dogs are most commonly used as service animals, other animals such as horses and capuchin monkeys are used for individual assistance as well.
