Service Pets are permitted in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The following language is taken directly from ADA.gov. Read the full ADA Requirements here.

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
