National Association of Guide Dog Users launches hotline

Any service-animal users who may have been denied access to an event or facility because of their companion may speak directly with a trained advocate through the new National Association of Guide Dog Users (NAGDU) toll-free education and advocacy hotline at 1-866-972-3647. The hotline, created with financial support from the National Federation of the Blind, also provides general information about service animals and the legal rights of those who use them. NAGDU plans to expand the hotline to include state-specific information and offer advice in multiple languages.
