The ADA, or, The Americans with Disabilities Act, was created in 1990 to prohibit discrimination and to ensure people with disabilities have equal opportunities for employment, public accommodations, transportation, and commercial facilities.

As service dog handlers, our veterans are protected under this act because they need their dogs in order to participate in everyday life. All disabled veterans deserve to have the same rights and opportunities as others. The dogs in our program are trained to assist these warriors with tasks important to their well-being. Warriors should be allowed to follow their owners into public places such as grocery stores. The ADA helps makes it possible for them to do so by providing laws that public entities must follow.
