A faith-based, Lawrence County homeless shelter for men has agreed to pay the government $5,000 and modify its “no pets” policy to allow people with disabilities to be accompanied by their service animals, according to federal court documents.

U.S. District Judge Cathy Bissoon last week approved a consent order settling a discrimination complaint the Department of Housing and Urban Development filed in June 2013 against City Rescue Mission of New Castle.

HUD sued the mission for denying a bed to Kenneth DeFiore, who is blind, because of his seeing-eye dog.
