Emotional Support Animal Registration : The Basics

An Emotional Support Animal (ESA) is an animal that mitigates any kind of emotional or psychological symptoms associated with a handler’s condition or disorder. Emotional Support Animals do not need to be custom trained to perform a specific tasks. As the name suggests, Emotional Support Animals provide comfort, a calming presence, and companionship to their partners in times of distress.

Like Service Dogs, ESAs also qualify for “No Pet” housing under fair housing laws. You must obtain a letter from a physician stating the need for your Emotional Support Animal. These letters must be signed my a licensed mental health professional in your home state and must be renewed each year.

The Differences Between Emotional Support Dogs and Service Dogs

Any individual with an emotional or psychological disability can have emotional support animal as a companion with the recommendation of a licensed mental health professional. Although  emotional support animals can be an important part of a treatment plan for those suffering from emotional distress, they are not considered service animals under the ADA.

  • Unlike service dogs who are custom trained to perform specific tasks for their disabled partnesr, there is no formal training needed to be an emotional support animal. Their primary role is to provide companionship and comfort to their partners suffering from psychological disorders such as chronic depression, anxiety or PTSD.
  • Service Dogs work to help their owners perform tasks they cannot perform on their own. An emotional support animal provides these therapeutic benefits from their presence alone.
  • To have an ESA, a doctor’s note is required. This recommendation letter must be written within the last year and must specify that an ESA will alleviate their symptoms in order to be allowed in housing.

Legal Protections for Emotional Support Animals

If a person suffers from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, or other psychological and emotional conditions, federal law protects their rights to have an official Emotional Support Animal. Below are some of the laws protecting individuals with ESAs and Service Animals

  • Fair Housing Act (FHA) :According to this federal  law, Emotional Support Animals  and Service Dogs are allowed access in housing without additional fees even if there is a “no pet” policy. Under the FHAA, landlords are required to provide reasonable accommodations, and hence, equal opportunities to use and enjoy the housing along with their handler regardless of breed or weight.
