“Many of the qualities that come so effortlessly to dogs - loyalty, devotion, selflessness, unflagging optimism, unqualified love - can be elusive to humans.” John Grogan
How Your Emotional Support Animal Letters Help with Housing That Does Not Allow Pets
- In some instances, your preferred housing may be “no pet” housing yet you want to live there with your Emotional Support Animal (ESA). If you are in this situation, you will need to have an ESA letter as proof that you need to have your animal with you with a daily function. This is outlined in the Fair Housing Act and in some situations Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
The Emotional Support Animal Process for Housing
- You will usually be asked to submit an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) letter for verification to your property manager, which is written by your medical health professional.
- They may ask for verification or additional accommodation forms to be filled out by the mental health professional, which details the daily functioning or task your dog is trained to help you with your disability that is affected.
- These additional forms or verification is a process for your therapist and a release of Information (ROI) is required to be signed by you and another session with your therapist will be required, with an additional fee for the additional Session, to make sure you agree and understand everything that is being shared, since it is confidential information.
