Benefits of owning and emotional support animal

Emotional Support Animals are Great for Seniors

People who have crossed their sixties are more prone to develop depression and anxiety if they have no work to do that is meaningful or productive.

They will feel as if there is someone who is dependant on them and requires love, care, and attention from them.

They are perfect for people who live alone and need someone to spend some quality time with

Numerous studies reveal pets to be beneficial for both mental as well as physical health. If you live alone or have no one who can give you time or attention, then investing in a pet is probably one of the best ways to improve your mental health.

I want a refund. This place denied my service animal and proceeded to not provide avenues to eventually get him certified. It took an act of god to get this woman, Robin, to tell me the minimum age requirements and she couldn't tell me training certification requirements. She simply said "if a check in counter agent at the airport sees you dog looking around, they aren't going to think he's trained" What kind of insensible response is that?
