ada resources for our community

At Paragon Service Dogs, we strongly believe in educating our community about the rights and roles of service animals. It is critical that our clients and others to understand them to create more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments. Individuals with disabilities may use service animals and emotional support animals for various reasons. However, many states also have laws that define a service animal differently. Therefore, you should check your state's law and follow the law that protects service animals the most.
