Kelly McGlasson started this petition to Target

We, the service dog and disabled community, request that Target ask any persons wanting to enter a Target store with an animal be asked the two ADA permitted questions.

1. Is it a service dog?

2. What tasks does it perform?

The increasing amount of people passing off emotional support animals and pets as service animals is putting real service dog teams in danger. By asking these two questions, especially the second question, Target can help protect those with service dogs and the people who rely on them. The second question, regarding what tasks the animal performs, can prevent those being dishonest from gaining access and putting real teams at risk. These questions do not require the persons with the animal to disclose their disability, but rather the tasks. One can respond by saying the animal is medical alert or performs deep pressure therapy in response to an psychiatric episode. Emotional support is not a task. 
By not asking these questions, untrained animals can not only put service dog teams in jeopardy, but the general public as well. An untrained animal may defecate near produce, be aggressive and bite a child, attack a real service dog, or distract a real service dog causing the dog to miss an alert for a medical condition.

Service dog handlers everywhere hope that Target will take action in order to protect those who rely on their dogs to live a more productive and fruitful lives.
