In this photo taken March 23, 2011, Dani Moore keeps her service rat, Hiyo Silver on her shoulder in Hesperia, Calif. On March 15, the Department of Justice announced a new set of guidelines for its Americans with Disabilities Act that limits service animals to dogs and some miniature horses. When Moore heard about the new law, she went to the Hesperia City Council and asked them to enact an ordinance that would allow her to continue using rats to alert her to spasms she can't feel because of spinal nerve injuries.
