Minnesota added a law that gives a real property owner immunity from liability for assistance animals in 2018. An owner of real property is not liable for any injury or damage caused by an assistance animal if:

(1) the owner believes in good faith that the animal is an assistance animal or the individual using the assistance animal represents that the animal is an assistance animal; and

(2) the injury or damage is not caused by the negligence of the owner of the real property and the owner is not liable under section 347.22.
