Lindora clinics recognize and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Service Animal Act and California laws which state that;
“Service animals are animals that are individually trained to perform tasks for people with disabilities such as guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling wheelchairs, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, or performing other special tasks. Service animals are working animals, not pets.”
Additionally, California has special provisions for Psychiatric Service Dogs defines as a canine that must perform tasks that are identifiable and directly related to an individual’s diagnosed psychiatric disability. The dog’s trainer or handler is required to teach that animal to recognize and respond to the unique needs of the person with the disability.
Lindora only allow Service animals and Psychiatric Canines to accompany patients while in clinics.
Pets, therapy animals or emotional support animals are not allowed to accompany patients while in clinics and this policy does not violate California or ADA laws and regulations.
