Orange County Government recognizes that a person with a disability has the right to be accompanied by a service animal trained to assist the person with his or her specific disability in all Orange County buildings and grounds open to the public. Generally, service animals mean any dog (or in limited cases, miniature horses) trained or in training to work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Therapy dogs, emotional support dogs, and companion dogs are not considered service animals.
