About Emotional Pet Support

Whether you live in an apartment, condo, or house, you have the legal right to have a pet in your residence to treat your medical condition! Knowing how valuable a pet can be for treating many psychological and physical symptoms, our mission at Emotional Pet Support could not be more simple: to increase awareness about the Fair Housing Act while qualifying as many individuals as possible to own an emotional support animal in their home.

At Emotional Pet Support we not only have a passion for animals, but also helping our members get through their days and nights as comfortable as possible. Fusing animals and humans together in a happy and loving home environment is why we started this business, not to mention that a lack of public knowledge and overall suppression of the truth by landlords and property management companies is why we wanted to make it a household name.

Ultimately, we came to the conclusion that lifting the veil of the Fair Housing act to educate the American people was not only necessary, but long overdue. At the end of the day, the best part about doing what we do – besides turning our passion into a business – is making rental living pet friendly. Sample ESA letter.

FAQs

An emotional support animal (ESA) is a person’s pet that has been prescribed by a person’s licensed therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist (any licensed mental health professional). The animal is part of the treatment program for this person and is designed to bring comfort and minimize the negative symptoms of the person’s emotional/psychological disability.
All types of domesticated animals can be Emotional Support Animals (cats, dog, and birds) and they can be any age (young puppies and kittens, too!). These animals do not need any specific task-training because their very presence mitigates the symptoms associated with a person’s psychological/emotional disability, unlike a working service dog. The only requirement is that the animal is manageable in public and does not create a nuisance in or around the home setting.

For a person to legally qualify for an emotional support animal (ESA), he/she must be considered emotionally disabled by a licensed mental health professional (therapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, etc.), as evidenced by a properly formatted prescription letter. Some airlines and property managers will accept a verification form completed by a family doctor, however.

The letter should state that:

  1. You are currently his/her patient
  2. Are under his/her care for the treatment of mental disability found in the DSM IV or V (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, version 4 or 5).
  3. Your disability substantially limits at least one major life activity
  4. He/she prescribes for you an emotional support animal as a necessary treatment for your mental health.

In addition, the letter must be dated, written on his/her letterhead, include his/her license type, number, date of license, and state in which the license was issued. View a Sample ESA letter. Remember that we at Emotional Pet Support can help prescribe such a letter and you can begin by taking our 10-minute exam.

The Air Carrier Access Act 49 U.S.C. 41705, Dept. of Transportation 14 C.F.R. Part 382, Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 are the laws that protect an emotionally disabled person and his/her ESA.

The legal protections an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) has are to:

  1. Fly with its emotionally or psychologically disabled handler in the cabin of an aircraft without being charged a pet fee.
  2. Qualify for no-pet housing (that also includes limited size, breed, or species housing) without being charged a pet fee.

No other public or private entity (motels, restaurants, stores, trains, taxis, buses, theaters, parks, beaches, libraries, zoos, etc.) is required to allow your ESA to accompany you and in all other instances, your ESA has no more rights than a pet. That means they aren’t protected by law to accompany you into any public place that does not allow pets. That doesn’t mean these places won’t let you, it just means that they are not required to, by law.

Your landlord or property manager can verify your letter by calling the verification number that is included on the prescribing physician’s letterhead. This is the verification phone number of the doctor that issues your prescription, not Emotional Pet Support’s number. Your landlord will simply leave a message with the first and last name of the member he is trying to verify and someone will contact them to verify your letter.
Unfortunately due to the difficult nature of being reimbursed by insurance companies for emotional support animal exams, we regret that we are not able to accept medical insurance at this time. In light of this, we have tried our best to make the approval process as easy and as affordable as possible.
We accept the following payment types: Discover, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
Believe it or not, Emotional Support Animals have been legally recognized by the US government since the late 1980′s. Up until recently, ESA’s have been flying under the radar due to a lack of knowledge of the Fair Housing Amendment Act. Over the last four years, the media has really put ESA’s in the National spotlight with many articles educating people on the merits of ESA’s. emotionalpetsupport.com is the first mainstream service in the history of the United States to provide Emotional Support evaluation to the general public. With a countless number of satisfied ESA owners, Emotional Pet Support is now growing to be a nationally recognized brand.
We contract with a team of mental health professionals who are licensed in multiple states. All of our consultants are active clinicians with established practices conducting mental health assessment, treatment, and disability determination.
Your dog may not be familiar with the airport environment, the confines of sitting at your feet on an airplane, or facing the scrutiny of airline personnel and other passengers. Please be aware that airline staff (including gate agents, TSA, and flight attendants) can deny passage for your emotional support animal (and you) if the animal is deemed to be a health threat, bother, or nuisance to other paying passengers, even if you have had your ESA pre-approved to accompany you on the plane. We suggest that you follow the American Kennel Club (AKC) Good Citizen program and ensure that your dog is trained to do the following so that your travel is smooth:

  • Accept a friendly stranger
  • Sit politely for petting
  • Walk on a lead
  • Walk calmly through a crowd
  • Sit, get down, and stay in place on command
  • Come when called
  • Behave politely around other dogs or cats
  • React appropriately to distractions
Before the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) was implemented, the protections offered for individuals utilizing animals for medical and emotional support were limited. Under Title II of the ADA, individuals with ESAs must have a reasonable accommodation for their animal as an assistive aid.

Since that time, the provisions have been modified, providing a greater scope of protection for service animals (SAs) and emotional support animals (ESAs), as well as the individuals who own them or utilize their services. However, it is very important to understand that ESAs are not permitted to be in as many places as service animals.

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development passed the Fair Housing Amendment Act of 1988. This law protects your rights to living in a “No Pet” policy dwelling unit with your Emotional Support Animal.
Wondering how you’re protected for traveling with your Emotional Support Animal? Well, here’s where you can learn about the Air Carrier Access Act of 1986.

Rules to consider: There are three general categories of animals who may be considered under these regulations:

Emotional support animals: These animals are not always specifically trained, but serve as comfort to individuals with a documented mental health condition. There is no restriction for the breed of emotional support animals because all domesticated animals can serve as ESAs.

Therapy animals: These animals are usually evaluated and registered by an agency and provide emotional support to individuals who need them. They are often used in hospitals, nursing homes and in school reading programs such as Reading Educational Assistance Dogs.

Service animals: These animals have been specially trained to perform tasks their owner can’t do on his or her own. Guide dogs for the blind are perhaps the most well known in this category. Service animals are not required by law to wear vests or have any form of identification.

Eighteen states, including Virginia, Colorado, Texas, Florida, and California, have laws that criminalize fraudulent representation of a service animal. These violations are usually misdemeanors, but repeated violations can result in jail time. West Virginia is not one of the 18 states, however, businesses could pursue a trespassing charge if a second incident occurs. Play it safe with an ESA!

The doctor’s ESA letter lists the species, breed, weight, and name on the emotional support animal letter. Emotional support dogs and emotional support cats are allowed to fly onboard an airplane while most other species can only become a dwelling / housing ESA. The ESA letter provides protection under federal law for those that benefit from having an ESA.

Your assigned doctor will prescribe a legitimate ESA letter on their letterhead. The letter can have up to three animals listed as emotional support animals under one individual name for each emotional support letter. The price is the same for an emotional support dog letter, emotional support cat letter, or any type of animal.
