From “Ask Kit!”:
Q: How does the disability law and pet policies for disable persons work? Can you have a therapy dog or do you have to be blind? Are there provisions and modifications for this? Thank you
A: I don’t know what a “therapy dog” is, but I presume it’s similar to a service dog, as used by anyone with a disability. My understanding of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is that if you have a disability, you are allowed a service dog to help you. Any where. Any time. Period.
Just as disabilities vary, so do service animals. I have just been writing about the ADA in Innfo (http://www.thebandblady.com/articles.html), my email newsletter. What I say in the articles is you can not deny a disabled person access to their service animal. Even if you have a “no pets” policy, you can’t deny a service animal.
The law is very clear about this aspect of service animals and disabilities.
If you have further questions, please ask. There may be others who have input.
