Only Dogs and Miniature Horses Are Officially Recognized As Service Animals
Sorry cat lovers but according to the Federal ADA (American with Disability Act), the only animals recognized to be service animals are dogs and miniature horses. But why a miniature horse? They can follow commands and be trained to perform the same tasks as dogs. Also, people who have allergies to dogs may do fine with a horse. A miniature horse may be also be preferred for those with dog phobias.
