The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is one of the laws that helps ensure people who use service animals can access buildings and businesses in the course of their daily lives. Together with leading Iowa restauranteurs and other Iowa Jaycees, you can help Paws & Effect will celebrate the 27th anniversary of this landmark legislation with its Fourth Annual "Tables & Tales" event! Throughout July, select Central Iowa restaurants will contribute a 10 percent or more of their proceeds to support training service and mobility animals for military veterans, children, and others.
"These business owners regularly open their doors to make dining experiences that are memorable, safe, and enjoyable for all patrons," says Nicole Shumate, executive director of Paws & Effect. "We're humbled that they're extending their hospitality to help us celebrate and improve service-dog access in our community."
