Service Animal Certification
FACT: The federal American Disabilities Act (ADA) does NOT require mandatory or voluntary certification of service animals.
FACT: Voluntary certification, registration, and service animal identification makes dealing with service animal accessibility in public places, private housing with no-pet policies, lodging, and public transportation MUCH easier.
The simple truth is that although certification of service animals is not required under federal law, many business owners, managers, and employees are not trained or aware that a person with a disability and service animal must allowed in their establishment by law! Because of this lack of education and understanding, many disabled persons and their service animals are often denied access until they’ve successfully pled their case and shared the law.
Even the informed and knowledgeable business will confront a person attempting to bring in their dog if the dog isn't wearing something (vest, patch, ID card) that clearly indicates the dog is a service animal.
FACT: By certifying and registering your dog with National Service Animal Registry, we'll make sure you have all the documentation, visible identification, and service animal patches you need to avoid nearly all questions and confrontations.
Living with a disability is hard enough without the embarrassment and frustration of having to fight for your rights to enter a store, restaurant or motel with your service animal. Let NSAR make your daily life a little easier. Register your Service Dog today!
