“With McKee by my side, people actually want to talk to me when I’m out and about,” Rhonda says. “When I had my cane, people ignored me. I think they were afraid of me.”

McKee transformed a world that once made Ronda feel invisible into a place where she feels seen. Every day, our dogs guide, comfort, and support—yet, sometimes their ability to bring a sense of belonging means the most.

Have you ever wondered what access rights guide dogs and service dogs have in Florida?

Our recent blog post, "Service Dog Access: Know the Rules and Your Rights," breaks down the world of service dogs, explaining what they are, their training requirements, certification criteria, and the access laws that safeguard these canines and their handlers.

We also cover how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects service dog rights, ensuring they have public access and exemptions from "no pets" policies. Whether you have a service dog or you’re an employer or business owner, it’s important to be educated about Florida’s access laws.

On September 11, 2001, Michael Hingson went to work at the World Trade Center as if it were any other morning, not knowing what was to come. With him was his faithful guide dog, Roselle. After two terrorist attacks struck the Twin Towers, Roselle confidently guided Michael down 78 floors to safety. Our Tampa Area Puppy Raisers sponsored and named a puppy Roselle to commemorate Roselle's courage, loyalty, and bravery. She became a breeder, and her puppies now provide the same steadfast loyalty for their handlers, just as Roselle did for Michael. #NeverForget ...
