The Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura has issued an Advisory to all Halal Restaurants that supports the use of Guide Dogs. The Advisory clearly states that “Guide Dogs are the guiding eyes for people who cannot see” and that “Halal regulations do not prohibit the access of Guide Dogs”.

Nonetheless, much work remains to be done to convince owners of eating establishments to be sympathetic and compassionate towards to blind persons with a Guide Dog and accept them with open arms as equal to their other patrons.
