Stores, community centers, restaurants, and other public facilities are having a difficult time with people wanting to bring their pets into these public spaces, and claiming they are service animals. This poster is designed to educate your customers, staff, and the public at large about what qualifies as a service doge pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). You can download this poster (Microsoft Word file below), and edit as you see fit.
It is based on the most current federal resources regarding service dogs (and miniature ponies). No other type of animal qualifies as a service animal under the ADA. See: www.ada.gov/service_animals_2010.htm
The Biden Administration is working on a new and revised ADA site. You can view the Beta version of the Service Animal webpage here: beta.ada.gov/topics/service-animals
Print the file below on card stock and hand out to places you frequent.
Let them know where to get a copy of the free poster they can customize with their own store, business, or organization logo.
