Dear Chairman Brownsberger, Chairwoman Cronin and Honorable Committee Members:

By signing this petition I am indicating my support for H.2277, An Act relative to the misrepresentation of a service animal, filed by Representative Kimberly Ferguson. This bill would make intentionally misrepresenting a pet or other animal as a service animal a civil infraction punishable by a fine and/or community service. H.2277 is crucial in protecting the rights and privileges of those with trained, legitimate service dogs and their access to public spaces. I ask that you report H.2277 favorably from the Joint Committee on Judiciary following its hearing.

    It is crucial for persons needing true service animals to be protected from public interaction with animals described as "Therapy Dogs" or similar, non-service-trained dogs.

    This is a must! Too many people taking advantage of the "service dog" title and the animal is not an actual service dog!
