Support a proposed federal rule to prohibit airlines from discriminating against service dogs based on breed.
The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) recently proposed a rule that would prohibit airlines from denying service dogs based on breed.
The rule would prohibit any blanket prohibitions implemented by certain airlines and instead, each service dog would be viewed as an individual.
This is a big leap forward for the countless individuals with disabilities who rely on well-mannered service dogs, including many who are pit-bull-terrier-like dogs, for safety and security in their lives.
But the rule isn’t finalized yet. The DOT is accepting comments from the public until April 6, 2020.
TAKE ACTION: Please take a moment to submit a personalized comment, respectfully urging the DOT to adopt a final rule that prohibits breed discrimination against service dogs.
