I can not answer this question. I placed the order on March 3rd. i paid $24.99 for expedited 2 day delivery. i should have received the package by Friday, March 5 by 8pm. The package is still in transit the update to its arrival is now Tues. 9th!! Now, I’m waiting patiently for my order that will be arriving late. All I ask is for the $24.99 be refunded for the non compliant 2 Day delivery fee. Thank you, Melisa Marshall

Amazing!! The therapist called me within 24 hours, and it was a huge stress relief to know that I have a housing letter now for my much needed emotional support dog Bugsy. I don't have to worry about anything. I will recommend this company to anyone who asks me :)
