Service Animals

LA Plaza Cocina abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), by allowing “service animals” only into all public areas of the museum. Definition of “service animal” as defined by the ADA is “any dog that is individually trained to work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability.”

This can also extend to miniature horses (additional requirements for miniature horses are explained in Behavior of Service Animals below). Dogs and miniature horses are the only animals recognized by Federal and State Law.
