California is one of the most progressive states in our Republic, and has some of the best laws for emotional support animals in the country. If you have been prescribed an emotional support animal in California the likelihood of not having issues with your landlord is very high. California has a long record of protecting tenant’s rights and have also punished landlords that have not accepted tenants that have emotional support animals legally.

California like all states protect emotional support animal handlers through the Fair Housing Act and the Air Carrier Act. These two laws allow individuals prescribed an emotional support animal to have access rights for their ESA in housing rentals and owned properties that may have HOA restrictions and you can also fly your emotional support animal in the cabin of plane. Some airlines do have restrictions on breeds, so make sure to check the airline before buying ticket as some don’t have breed restrictions.

How To Get an ESA Letter in California

In California, to have a legitimate emotional support animal you will need to have a written recommendation for your ESA by either a Physician or a licensed Therapist. Your ESA recommendation letter will need to document that your struggle with emotional or mental issues that require you to have your ESA. The recommendation letter must be written on the Physician’s or Therapist’s professional letterhead and must include their licensing information along with their signature.

Make sure that any online organization that you work with connects you to a California licensed mental health professional so that your ESA letter is valid. Getting an ESA letter while you are in California from a non-California licensed mental health professional could get your ESA denied.

If you don’t have a Dr or Therapist that is willing to write recommendation letter for your Emotional Support Animal our network of licensed therapists in California can help. To get started click the link below;

I received my package very quickly. Everything was very nice. I am very pleased. The only concern I have is that I ordered a small best, using you pound scale, and it just fits my dog and she is only 18 lbs. In an case, all is good and I highly recommend your products to everyone in need of identifying their dog.
