Community Educaiton on the Rights and roles of service animals

What IHDI Does

Resources for Our Community

At IHDI, we strongly believe in educating our community about the rights and roles of service animals. It's important for our clients to know and others who wish to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all. Individuals with disabilities may use service animals and emotional support animals for a variety of reasons. However, many states also have laws that provide a different definition of a service animal. Therefore, you should check your state's law and follow the law that offers the most protection for service animals.
