Most of us wouldn’t question the need for a blind person to have their seeing-eye dog with them as they travel in the community, but what if it was an assistance rat or a cat?
What if your employee said they needed to take their lemur to work to assist with psychological problems?
How do you manage an environment where you have a person with their assistance rat seated next to another with an assistance cat?
Should all assistance animals be professionally accredited?
These are some of the issues to be discussed at a Brisbane workshop this week, organised by University of Queensland law researcher and lecturer Dr Paul Harpur.
