1,013 Signatures Goal: 1,000

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.

    I volunteer many hours each week to help train and socialize service dogs. When unqualified pets are given the same access as qualified working service animals, I take this violation personally.

    I believe intentional misrepresentation of a dog as a service animal should be a felony offense.
