What Is An ESA Letter?

An ESA letter is a legitimate document that facilitates pet owners in securing rental accommodations, college dorms, Airbnb stays, hotels, and travel companionship with their furry friends.

In United States, the department of housing and urban development oversees and protects the ESAs rights as governed by the Fair Housing Act. This law helps you stay with your pet in the same apartment without paying any additional charges. Some apartment owners and rental companies don’t allow pets or could also ask for huge fees.

You could also take your pets in some stores, restaurants, college dormitories, Airbnb, etc. depending on their policies.

What is an Emotional Support Animal?

An Emotional Support Animal is a domesticated animal that offers emotional or psychological benefits to its owner. It can provide comfort, support, and therapeutic benefits to individuals with mental health conditions.

Almost any type of pet, including cats, birds, rats, rabbits, or any other domesticated animal, can qualify as an ESA. Even though they act as a means of help to an individual, they are not recognized as service animals under the Americans with Disabilities Act. They are not trained for specific tasks or activities but are there to help maintain your mental well-being.

A licensed mental health professional must prescribe the pet for a person with a mental illness to designate it as an ESA. Unlike service animals, ESAs cannot enter public places that normally do not allow pets, such as restaurants and shopping centers. The property owner has the discretion to allow them or not.

Emotional Support Animal vs. Psychiatric Service Animal: Know the Difference.

Emotional Support Animals are different from Psychiatric Service Animals in terms of the training and tasks performed by them. Psychiatric Service animals are working animals that are trained to help people with disabilities.

PSAs can help people with a variety of disabilities, including mental or emotional disabilities. Some of the tasks performed by PSAs include calming the handler in case of anxiety attacks, preventing owner from causing self-harm, alerting the person about surroundings, medicine reminders, and even predicting seizures. It is important to note that only a dog can become a psychiatric service animal.

No pet’s policy does not apply to psychiatric service dogs, and therefore they can accompany you to any public space without any limitation or discrimination. The Same can’t be said for ESAs because public places can have their own rules regarding pets.

The Fair Housing Act (FHA) protects both Psychiatric Service Animals and ESAs, so the landlord needs to make reasonable accommodations for them as discussed above. Under the Air Carrier Access Act, airlines can not refuse service to any person with disability or require an advanced declaration about the PSA. They can’t be charged a pet fee, a fee for their size or decline their cabin presence along with the travelling person. Though similar liberty earlier applied to Emotional Support Animals as well but as of January 2021, the ESAs are considered as regular pets, and it’s up to the airlines to make rules accordingly.

Therefore, ESAs can be charged a pet fee or denied cabin travel due to size and breed of your support animal.

Who Qualifies For An Emotional Support Animal Letter?

Any person suffering from any kind of mental issue and facing a problem in their daily lifestyle or is on any kind of medication or counselling, can apply for an ESA.

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.

Do I Need to Register My ESA with the State?

No, you do not need to register your pet as an emotional support animal with the state. State regulations do not require pet owners to go through the hassle of registering their pets in order to qualify them as ESAs. All you need is an ESA letter from a state-licensed healthcare professional. This letter serves as valid proof that your pet is an emotional support animal and that your condition necessitates their presence.

ESA letters can be acquired in all states. However, their rights can be state-specific as some states may be friendly, while others have more strict guidelines for Emotional Support Animals.

Can a current pet be considered an Emotional Support Animal?

ESAs are not limited to any breed or species. Almost any animal can qualify until it risks others’ safety.
Your already existing pet can qualify as your Emotional Support Animal if they can offer you therapeutic health benefits. Because they can provide emotional comfort, domesticated animals like dogs and cats are likely to be eligible. On the other hand, your current pet can be your ESA if it’s not a dog or a cat, such as a rabbit, ferret, bird, hamster, or iguana. There are no breed or species restrictions on ESAs. Until an animal endangers the safety of others, almost any kind of animal is eligible.

Emotional support animals are not limited to any breed or species. Almost any animal can qualify as an ESA if it does not risk others’ safety. Your already existing pet can also become an emotional support animal if they offer you therapeutic health benefits. Meanwhile, domesticated dogs and cats are among the most popular pets. Breeds like rabbits, ferrets, birds, hamsters, or iguanas can also qualify as one. There are no breed or species restrictions on ESAs. Until an animal endangers the safety of others, almost any kind of animal is eligible.

How do I ensure my ESA letter is legitimate and not a scam?

An effective ESA letter should clarify that your pet is providing you with emotional, anxiety, or mental health support. It ought to contain:

  • A letter signed and bearing the doctor’s name.
  • The date you received the letter from the doctor.
  • Explain what makes an ESA necessary.

Do I need a certificate, license, ID card, or vest for my ESA if I have a letter?

If you have an approved letter from a licensed mental health professional, you don’t need a certificate, license, ID card, or vest for your ESA. Federal and state rules don’t require emotional support dog vests or ID card registration.
Such items are only considered accessories under laws and hold no legal weight. You can purchase it for personal convenience, but it will not provide any legal benefit.

What should I do if my landlord rejects my valid ESA letter?

If your landlord refuses to accept your valid emotional support animal letter, ensure that the health professional credentials are written on it. Your landlord can contact them for confirmation. A few property owners need to learn more about Emotional Support Animals. In this case, you can educate them about their rights. If they still refuse, you can complain to the Department of Housing.

What happens if I move to another state? Is my ESA letter still valid?

If you move to another state, your ESA letter is still valid as long as a licensed therapist has issued it in your previous state. Fair Housing rules only require the ESA letter to be from a different state where you’re seeking accommodation from your landlord.

How can I protect my rights if someone challenges the validity of my ESA?

It is crucial to make them aware of emotional support animals and the rights of those who own them. Understanding any confusion is often accomplished by exchanging private stories and helpful resources. By educating and encouraging one another, we can ensure that everyone understands the importance of emotional support animals and the rights individuals with mental health problems hold.

Does my emotional support animal letter disclose information about my medical condition?

Your ESA Letter does not include information about your medical condition. Instead, it consists of details that define your mental or emotional needs. This is done per federal laws, so you can quickly access your sources of support without disclosing your information.

Do I need to consult a mental health professional to obtain an ESA letter?

Consulting a mental health professional is essential to getting an Emotional Support Animal. Federal Housing laws require you to contact a state-licensed mental health professional and let them diagnose whether you are an eligible candidate for an ESA.

Can my ESA travel with me on an airplane?

Because of new rules established by the Air Carrier Access Act, airlines can choose whether to let emotional support animals on board. Many popular airlines, such as Alaska, JetBlue, Southwest, United, and American Airlines, have stopped accepting ESAs. However, a few still do, so it’s advisable to check what the airline says before you fly.

Can I take my ESA to work with me?

Your workplace is considered a public accommodation, so it must follow accessibility rules. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires reasonable accommodations for employees with mental health problems.
However, a trained animal must assist since it is a public accommodation. ESAs, unlike service animals, receive no formal training. As a result, it is totally up to the employer whether to accept your ESA.

Are there any specific training requirements for my ESA?

Emotional Support Animals don’t need specific training like service animals do. Their sole purpose is to comfort their handler by providing support whenever necessary.

Do I need to register my ESA or get a special ID?

No, you don’t need to register your ESA or get a unique ID for them. Having an ESA letter from a legitimate provider is enough. Online registration companies have a private database where they add the details of your ESA. These databases hold no recognition under federal rules.

Can I upgrade my ESA to a service animal status later?

Once your animal is trained, you can upgrade your ESA to a service animal. Also, Service Animal status is limited to a few species, including dogs, cats, and miniature horses. If you own any other animal species, they can not qualify as service animals.

How can I protect my rights if someone challenges the validity of my ESA?

Educating people regarding the role of an ESA is important. Educating and encouraging people ensures that every individual understands the importance of assistance animals and fosters a healthy environment for everyone.

Is it necessary to renew my ESA letter periodically?

Yes, it is important to renew your emotional support animal letter annually. You can contact the same licensed professional or go to another professional to renew it. However, if you are struggling to find an LMHP in the state or have lost connection with your existing provider you can apply to Fast ESA Letter. We work with a team of licensed mental health professionals who provide recommendations after a thorough evaluation.

Can my ESA letter apply to multiple emotional support animals?

Yes, you can have more than one ESA if a mental health professional recommends them. Each of your ESAs must have its own ESA letter signed by an LMHP in the state. Landlords must let you live with all your ESAs and cannot charge extra fees or deposits. According to the FHA, there is no limit on the number of ESAs one can adopt. Nevertheless, while adopting one must make sure that their ESA does not burden or pose a risk to fellow tenants.

What privileges do you get with an ESA letter?

With a legitimate emotional support animal letter.

  1. You get access to all rental housing including the ‘no-pet-allowed’ one with your ESA without objection from your landlord
  2. You get access to the college dorm without anyone questioning your assistance animal.
  3. You get a support system that aids in improving your mood and reducing stress.

Do I need an ESA letter before adopting my support animal?

You can get an emotional support animal letter before getting an ESA, as it proves that you need an assistance animal to alleviate your disability-related symptoms. Getting an ESA letter early also gives you the benefit of getting the time for permission from the landlord to bring an animal in-house.

Does insurance cover the cost of getting an ESA letter?

Health insurance might cover the cost of getting an emotional support animal letter from a professional. However, it is essential to note that online companies do not accept insurance. You can contact and confirm the company before a visit to ensure that your insurance can cover costs.
