Service Animals: What They Do To Help People

https://k9sonthefrontline.org/why-dogs/

Service animals don't just help those who are disabled, and they're not just dogs. We learn about different categories and species of service animals, as well as what regulations exist to stem the trend toward over-using the term 'therapy' animal.

Guests

Linda Murray, co-founder and vice president of K9s on the Front Line

John Locke, therapy program at Maine Medical Center

Barbara Archer Hirsch (by phone), Maine Human Rights Commission counsel
