  • American With  Disabilities Act – Service Animals – The Law, Identification and Compliance
  • Fair Housing Act – Companion and Support Animals – The Law, Identification and Compliance
  • Air Carrier Act – Travel Support Animals –   The Law, Identification and Compliance
  • The 2016 Colorado Law – Service Animals Specifically Identified in compliance with the current Americans with Disabilities Act- Specifically, false identification of an animal as a Service Animal
