Service Animals work to remove barriers that persons with disabilities face every day. The NL Service Animal Act ensures that a person with a service animal has equal access to accommodations, services or facilities. Often times a service animal can be identified by a vest or harness, however, this is not always the case. The owner can also provide documentation that confirms the person requires the use of a service animal.
Training is available for those who wish to learn more about service animals through the Coalition of Persons with Disabilities – NL 709.722.7011.
For specific information on the Service Animal Act, contact the Department of Justice 709.729.5942.
