Emotional Support Animals provide comfort, support, and relief of symptoms that allow individual functioning in life for people with specific emotional and mental conditions or restrictions. 

 

Emotional Support Animals do not need to be registered or have specialized training.  To have an Emotional Support Animal, a legitimate letter written by a mental health professional who has evaluated and is treating the individual is needed.  A letter declaring your pet an Emotional Support Animal allows your pet to companion you on airplanes and in your rented property without paying additional fees or deposits.  To receive an ESA Letter for your pet or intended pet, an initial intake is required.
