Can I get an ESA recommendation for more than one pet?
Yes, you can. You can get ESA letters for your desired breed, weight, size, and number of emotional support animals.
As per fair Housing law, if your request for reasonable accommodation is reasonable, a landlord cannot deny your request. Therefore, as long as your request to have your desired number of emotional support animals is reasonable, you can adopt as many ESAs as you want and get ESA letters for the same.
However, unreasonable accommodation requests can be denied. For example, if you want to keep Eight emotional support dogs in a one-room rental apartment, the Landlord can deny your ESA letters as these dogs might be unable to fit in a small room, and further might harm the Landlord’s property.
What is the Fair Housing Act? I have no Clue!
Fair Housing Act illegalizes discrimination against a person based on;
- National origin,
- Family Status,
- And disability; by any housing providers like landlords, real estate agents, and commodities like banks, municipalities, house lending companies, etc.
Solely talking about discrimination based on disability, it is illegal to refuse the “reasonable accommodation” request of a disabled individual by house lending authorities.
Therefore, as per the Fair Housing Act, a landlord or any house lending authority cannot deny a mentally or emotionally disabled person’s request to accommodate an emotional support animal with them.

Note: As per Laws, California’s health professionals are obliged to make a minimum 30-day patient-doctor relationship with the patient to evaluate them for an ESA letter’s approval. Check out this piece of information to know more about the process to get an ESA letter in California.
What if my Landlord wants to verify my ESA letter?
You don’t need to worry. We are with you from the instance you apply for our service until the Landlord accepts your ESA letter.

Do I have to register my ESA with the State?
Your pet doesn’t require any registration to qualify as an emotional support animal. Neither State rules demand pet parents register their pets with the State to approve them as emotional support animals.
An ESA letter signed by your State’s licensed healthcare professional is enough proof that your pet is an emotional support animal and your illness requires you to be around them.
This is my first review. I usually abstain from submitting any reviews, no matter whether my experience has been good or bad. But for the first time, I wanted to share my experience. Customer service representatives are great and they answer your call right away. When you submit your information, the questions are very detailed, allowing you an opportunity to provide as much information as possible and also, allowing a healthcare professional who will be reviewing your information an opportunity to get a very thorough picture about yourself and your condition. And they connect you with a local healthcare provider. I got my letter within an hour or so. Hands down, the best experience I ever had. Highly recommended.

After being informed that (most) medical/medicad providers ( psychiatrists & therapist) in San Diego do not provide patients with “ESA” letters I had to do further research and found this professional clinical who assessed my current disability and identified my symptoms that could be improved with the support of an animal. The process was professional , effective and official ( money back guaranteed). I was emailed an accredited letter and now will provide it to my landlord so that i can bring my support dog home !
We had an excellent experience with fastesa. I had many questions about an esa for a minor, and a specific form my community required. All my questions were answered promptly, I was able to receive the specific form I needed, the price was fine, and everything was seamless.
This company is so amazing they were there for me and my family when we needed them the most they got me through the process and made it seem easy I was unsure about the application and didn’t understand a lot about the questions but they had somebody there to take my worries away and help me be able to keep our dog who I was going to have to let go and it was like giving away one of my children and I couldn’t do it they gave me the help I needed and coached me through the process and the filling out of the application and made it easy to understand I couldn’t have asked for anything more from this company there angels from God and I cannot thank them enough in fact thank you just isn’t enough to say for what they have done for me and my family I wouldn’t have changed experience for anything in the world God bless them and their families and thank you God for sending them into my life and my dog Bobo we are forever in your debt and we thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for what you have done for us God bless
honestly the best experience I’ve had. my dog comes with me everywhere I go and being that she is a big dog it’s hard to find housing for me. currently going through a divorce, being forced to move, dealing with depression and constant anxiety i most of the time find it hard to get through the day or find motivation to get up and do anything. my dog is all I have living on my own in a different state and just trying to make it. fast ESA made it so easy and they were super fast at responding. and even after my new apt complex requested a form to be filled out the doc got it done in just a few hours! honestly this has eased my stress on finding a home knowing I’m mow approved with my dog.

You have probably heard each of these terms by now, but did you know that each term signifies a different kind of dog with a different kind of training and is meant for a different kind of work?
That’s right. A therapy dog does a completely different kind of work than a service dog and they both have a different kind of training than an emotional support dog has.
