The Law

By: Sidney

In this opinion article, I will be telling you my opinion about the service animal law that was made in 2011. It states that only service dogs can be used as pets in public places. I think it should be different because of many reasons. Here are some of them.

I think that the law should be changed because people with dissabilities should be able to choose what service animal they take into public places with them. I also think that the service animals need to be checked by a veteraniarin to make sure that the animal doesn’t carry a disease around in public places. I think this because people with dissabilities should have the right to chose a service animal they are comfortable with. Here are some of the reasons people might want different service animals.

Some service animals can perform more complicated tasks than others. Most people choose their service animal, so that they can be comfortable with it. For example, a service can’t get their master a drink, like a monkey can. Service animals have many tasks that they help their master accomplish. For example, they help with everyday tasks, or they just comfort their master. Some people chose lizards, snakes, pigs, birds, cats, monkeys, and dogs as their comforting service animals.

I understand the fact that people don’t want animals with diseases in public places, but the owner needs to be comfortable with their service animal. That’s why the law should be like it was before it was changed in 2011.
