Emotional Support Animal Scam

Article Summary: 

The blog discusses the abuse of emotional support animal requests in communities with no-pets policies. It notes that while service animals are considered reasonable accommodation for those with doctor-certified disabilities, the certification process for emotional support animals is unregulated and often abused. Individuals can obtain certification by completing an online questionnaire and paying a fee. Condo corporations enforcing pet restrictions are not required to accept documentation from unregulated registries or medical providers, and can request additional details from a local medical provider. Legitimate reasons for requesting a service animal accommodation include blindness, deafness, and PTSD. The blog emphasizes that condo corporations should not reject legitimate requests, as it would be a form of discrimination, but illegitimate requests should be dropped.
