    Helping Hands:

    They may be a little up in the air after recent changes to the definition of "service animal" under the ADA. Effective in six months, only dogs will legally be recognized as service animals under the ADA. However, monkey helpers might still be placed for in home use only. I believe it has always been the policy of Helping Hands that the monkeys they place are for home use anyway, so it may not affect them.
