Avoid Pet Related Travel Fees and Qualify For No Pet Housing!
Many people register their dogs as Service Animals or Emotional Support Animals (ESA) so they can accompany them into stores, restaurants, motels, or on airline flights (for no extra cost). Service Dogs and Emotional Support Animals qualify for housing where pets aren't allowed.
Property managers are required to make reasonable accommodation to permit a disabled handler to keep a Service Dog or Emotional Support Animal (ESA), even when a landlord's policy explicitly prohibits pets, as set forth in the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Does My Service Dog Have to Be Professionally Trained?
No, you can train your own dog to be a service animal. Most people train their own service animal, therapy animal, or emotional support animal.
What Is Included In the Registration?
- 2 Service Animal Photo ID Cards
- 2 rings to attach ID Card to Collar or Vest
- Service Animal Certificate of Registration
- Inclusion in the RMSA database
Remember Not All Disabilities Are Visible
Most people think of a service dog as a large breed dog for the blind or for working with a person confined to a wheelchair. The reality is that the majority of service dogs are small dogs that perform tasks for otherwise normal people with disorders related to emotional, psychological, hearing, seizure, diabetic, or for other medical issues - disabilities that are completely invisible.
