Where Are Service Animals Allowed?

Under the ADA, State and local governments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that serve the public generally must allow service animals to accompany people with disabilities in all areas of the facility where the public is normally allowed to go.

For example, a New York hospital could notexclude a service animal frompatient rooms, clinics, cafeterias, or examination rooms. However, it could exclude a service animal from operating rooms or burn units where the animal’s presence could compromise a sterile environment.
