Individuals with disabilities that use service or support animals are allowed equal access to all City-sponsored programs, facilities, services, and activities.  For private businesses or establishments that sell or prepare food, the state law is unclear; while service dogs must be allowed anywhere, you may be denied access if you have a support animal of another species.

For more information on service and support animals, see The Mayor’s Office on Disability (External Link).
