ADA Service Animals - When it is not obvious what service an animal provides, only limited inquiries are allowed. Staff may ask two questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability, and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform. Staff cannot ask about the person’s disability, require medical documentation, require a special identification card or training documentation for the dog, or ask that the dog demonstrate its ability to perform the work or task.
Prison Pet Partnership Program (This program places rescued dogs with prisoners at the women's correctional center, for grooming, boarding, and training as assistance/therapy animals. The trained dogs are provided at no cost to disabled individuals.)
