Help Veterans & Dogs - Urge Congress to Adopt National Veteran Service Dog Standards
This petition had 21,389 supporters
Here's one problem we can solve.
Right now there is a lot of confusion over service, therapy, and emotional support dogs. Current service dog laws are being abused because there isn't a national standard.
As a result, the validity of service dogs has been questioned. Veterans and their service dogs are being denied entry to public places, such as restaurants and airports.
Many veterans report that their service dog allowed them to return to a normal life. Doesn't normal life include living without fear of confrontation?
A variety of "service dog" bills have been presented in the House and Senate.
We need one national standard.
American Humane, National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations (NAVSO) and a group of academic, business and government experts have created the first national standard for service dogs, but we need your help.
Sign and share this petition today and let the House and Senate Committees for Veterans' Affairs know you support one common sense national standard for service dogs.
Supporting this petition will ensure veterans and their service dogs have the opportunity to become credentialed.
Let's help veterans and their service dogs live a life without fear of confrontation.
