Ways to Connect

Service Animals have become more prevalent in recent years.  Many people don't understand the rights of those with service animals or the rights of business owners when it comes to allowing service animals into their places of business.  Another area of confusion stems from proper etiquette when you are around a service animal, is it ok to pet them, distract them, etc.
