The most time consuming was selecting from the packages available. I'm now just waiting on the doctor for my letters and the package selected to arrive. It was easier than.i thought it would be, especially since it is a need for me. NY mother's funeral is on Friday and my dog is all I have.

Hello The process is very easy, fast and efficient! After you pay online for the ESA letter...it is literally the same day that they call to schedule your appointment. The whole process took 2 days form the time I paid for the letter, to the time my letter was in the mail. I was very happy with their customer service! Thank you for making this a very easy transaction and process! Andrea

My family and I where overwhelming pleased. My husband suffered a very bad spinel injury from a accident and he was reluctant to get a service dog being the moncho guy his claims to be. Well let me tell you him having the 1st dog since he lost his dog as child truly brought out another side of him. They level of love and security that they display for each other is amazing. We have 3 daughters, and he's always wanted a son and now he's got one in the K-9 form that has become his best friend and comfort zone. So for anyone who might be suffering from some illness or injury, and has a service animal who needs to be registered have credentials don't hesitate at all when shopping with USA SERVICE ANIMAL REGISTRATION😊

We go on trips all the time and I love having my dog with me due to my PTSD. We always had to look for hotels that allowed pets and then we would only get a room approved for pets only and they weren't very clean. Now we can enjoy hotels without being treated like a second class citizen... Thank you
