Sadly, some people are asking whether "service animal" laws are being abused by those that want to scam the device.

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces as well as other editorials where people rant and complain about people they believe to be abusing the device. You hear some complain they had to sit near your pet dog at a restaurant which they don't believe is a "real" service dog, forms of languages complain that the neighbors possess a pet in the "no pet" building since they claimed the animal is esa doctors near me.

A few of the commentary comes with an indignant tone, and some people are downright angry.

So how exactly does this affect those who legitimately own and make use of a service animal to better their lives? In lots of ways.

For one, it may it more challenging to navigate bureaucracy of the world when your claim of your disability and your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If a landlord or business owner has heard negative stories claiming that some individuals are abusing the machine, it can cause these to look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and business owners have begun seeking proof of status, even though asking for written or any other evidence is not always legal, and even though many people who just love legitimate service animals and emotional support animals have not taken advantage of registering them, and so have no such documentation to produce.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and companies that make registrations services such as the Service Animal Registry of California so vital to legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can benefit shortcut the housing rental and business access issues once the owner can create a simple document that will often satisfy the owner or landlord. Also, when working with public spaces, it is usually easier to hand over a document having a simple sentence stating, "This is really a service animal" and letting another party see the information, instead of having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public areas, with onlookers listening in and gathering round the discussion.

So, carry out some people scam the machine, or game what the law states? Sadly, the answer is "probably yes." In life, there is always room for abuse and people can make an effort to take advantage of many systems that we as a society put in place to protect the rights of people who need such protection. For instance, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to take advantage of free and convenient parking. As well as the number of folks who lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse store return policies, or do other bad acts.

But that percentage of abuse, which in the area of service animal laws is hopefully small, is arguably a very small investment when compared to the higher purpose of promoting access and equality for many.

In the end, you can not control any system making it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the not enough people who scam service animal laws will be the price we gladly pay to ensure the disabled in the great condition of California have equal access under law.
