According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals are allowed access to most places that are normally open to the public.
Heeling House is proud to be an organization that is active in our community. We can be found in Loudoun and Fairfax County School Districts, the Loudoun County Public Library System, local therapy centers and hospitals, at local meetings, events, and special occasions. You might even run into us 'out on the town' training our animals, sharing their joy, and educating the public about the field of Animal Assisted Interactions.
