Some of you have pets which you love! Some of you don't have pets but perhaps have considered having one! It's no surprise to know that having a pet bings to many joy, peace and love. For some pets have been life savers! 

Over the years the medical and mental health field has recognized and advocated the benefits of animals on the emotional and mental well-being of individuals and families. In fact some animals have been used as part of mental health treatments and others have been differentiated from simple pets to be considered as emotional support animals, based on the licensed professional's testimonial and certification (diagnosis) of the necessity of the animal for the mental well-being of the individual and/or family.

You might qualify if you have one or more issues listed here:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Sleep issues
  • Learning difficulties
  • Phobias
  • Panic disorders
  • Personality disorders

So WHY might you want to get assessed to certify your pet (or future one) officially as an Emotional Support Animal, because the Law protects those with mental health diagnosis that need their animal for their well-being.

Once your pet is certified as an emotional support animal you will be able to take your ESA with you when you travel, as well as keep them in a rental home that perhaps does not allow pets. Having the proper documentation for an ESA will also exempt you from paying pet rental fees or pet travel fees (as noted under federal law), as your ESA is not considered a typical pet, but instead an animal that provides alleviation of a condition you may have.
