Your ESA is protected by:

SECTION 504 OF THE REHABILITATION ACT OF 1973 and THE FEDERAL FAIR HOUSING AMENDMENTS which state that a housing provider may not deny housing due to suspicion of a potential consumer having a disability or a disability-related need for an assistance animal.

THE AIR CARRIER ACCESS ACT (49 U.S.C. 41705 AND 14 C.F.R. 382) which protects aircraft passengers from discrimination on the basis of mental disability and/or need for an assistance animal to alleviate symptoms of a disability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does my ESA pet need to be professionally trained?


No, ESAs do not need to be professionally trained if they already provide you comfort and help alleviate your symptoms. However, if your ESA is being disruptive in a private establishment, the establishment has the right to ask you to remove your pet from the premises.




What is the difference between an Emotional Support Animal and a Service Animal?


Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) a service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person's disability. Emotional support animals provide comfort just by being with a person. Because they have not been trained to perform a specific job or task, they do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. However, some State or local governments have laws that allow people to take emotional support animals into public places. You may check with your State and local government agencies to find out about these laws.




Can I bring my ESA pet into stores and restaurants?


Stores and restaurants are not required to accept your ESA on premises; however, many establishments do accept ESAs at their discretion, so it is recommended that you call the establishment to inquire about their specific policy.
