Service Animals and the ADA

On July 13, 2015 the Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a nine page technical assistance FAQ – Service Animals and the ADA to help assist covered entities like schools and municipalities in understanding how the service animal provisions of the regulations apply to them.

The FAQ is a follow up to the DOJ’s previous technical assistance bulletin- Revised ADA Requirements: Service Animals which was issued in 2011.

The 2015 FAQ can be found here:FAQ Service Animals

The 2011 DOJ technical Assistance Document can be found here: 2011- Revised ADA Requirements-Service Animals
