Emotional Support Animal Laws

In order to  qualify to have an emotional support animal one must be prescribed an emotional support animal by a licensed mental health professional.  Both the Air Carriers Access Act (ACAA) and the Fair Housing Act (FHA) call for modification of (no pets) policies for emotional support animals.

The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 requires the landlord/property manager to make a reasonable accommodation to their policies and procedures allowing the tenant to  have the emotional support animal.  The Air Carriers Access Act allows for mentally or emotionally disabled persons to be accompanied on flights by an emotional support animal.  At USA Service Dog registration we have helped thousands of families qualify for emotional support animal for their families.

What Does the Emotional Support Animal Law Allow?

In most cases landlords and airlines will accommodate an Emotional Support Animal but there are certain cases where they may not. Below are some examples where they may not accommodate your emotional support animal.

  • If the building has four or less unit and the landlord occupies one of the units
  • Both hotels and motels do not fall under the Fair Housing Act for ESA’s and are considered public places and fall under the American Disability Act and are only required by law to accept service animals.
  • Private Clubs
  • Single family housing sold or rented without a real estate broker.

How Do I Get an Emotional Support Letter

At USA Service Dog Registration we have helped thousands of families qualify for emotional support animals.  You can simply qualify by filling out our online form and one of our licensed therapists will review your case and issue an emotional support letter.

What if My Landlord or Airline Wants to Verify my ESA?

One of the benefits of working with USA Service Dog Registration is we will have your file online that can be retrieved 24/7 by simply inputting your 10-digit registration number in addition to receiving a prescription from one of our licensed therapists.  These laws require your landlord or airline to accept the letter and other credentials you receive from USA Service Dog Registration.  If the Landlord or Airline doesn’t want to accommodate your emotional support animal they are discriminating against a disabled person and are in violation of federal law.

You can Download the Federal Law By Clicking Button Below

Housing Landlords and Managers Can’t do the Following:

  • They can’t require that the ESA animal performs a certain task like a service animal
  • They can’t require a pet deposit or fee for accommodating the emotional support animal, even when the landlord or manager requires other tenants to pay a pet deposit.
  • Inquire about the extent of the person’s disability, or ask for detailed medical record.
  • The landlord or manager cannot refuse to accommodate your animal because their insurance policy won’t allow a species, breed or weight limit of the ESA.

The small had gotten too tight around his ribs and was uncomfortable for Sensei so I purchased a medium size yet it’s too loose at it’s smallest adjustment.

This was a phenomenal experience! I’ve never needed a service animal before but with being diagnosed with Anxiety and various other things I started looking into finding a puppy and training it for my service anima. This registry is simple and easy to use and gives me the piece of kind that I need to be able to take my new little one with me! Thank you!

The mesh vest fits perfectly and will be cool for summer. The tags have all the correct information on them and look very official. It’s a relief to know my Emotional Support Dog is registered and I can feel confident, wherever I go, because his papers are official and in order. The online support was very helpful. Thank you.
