Courtney Stone, Senior Manager of Independent Living, and Elle Livengood, Community Advocacy Coordinator, discuss the ins and outs of this important topic, including:

  • The difference between service animals and emotional support animals.
  • The two types of animals that qualify as service animals.
  • Whether you need proof that your animal is a service animal.
  • The two questions you can legally ask about service animals.
