Did you know that numerous states have service animal laws that make it illegal to fraudulently misrepresent any animal as a service animal to businesses or other public places?

In Arizona, for example, the law carries a civil penalty of up to $250 for each violation. Fake service animals can harm the reputation of a highly trained service dog (or miniature horse) if they exhibit negative behavior in public or show signs of aggression toward people and other animals. Research your state's laws for specific details on this violation.

    "My experience with Soldier’s Best Friend has been life changing. Coping with civilian life has become more manageable. I often imagine how simple life is for my buddy Wilfred… it keeps it all in perspective. When things get to be too much, my buddy is there. From the restless nights to the difficult situations, I have something that has been an elusive possibility…. I have hope again. I consider myself fortunate to have had this opportunity. Having this service animal has given me both an outlet for coping and restored much of my confidence. Thanks Soldier’s Best Friend and the generous donors who made this all possible.”
