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

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

A number of the commentary has an indignant tone, and a few people are downright angry.

So how exactly does this affect those who legitimately own and employ a service animal to higher their lives? In many ways.

For one, it may it more difficult to navigate bureaucracy on the planet when your claim of a disability as well as your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If your landlord or business owner has heard negative stories claiming that many people are abusing the device, it can cause these to look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and companies have begun requesting proof of status, although asking for written or other evidence isn't necessarily legal, and even though many people who just love legitimate service animals and emotional support animals haven't taken advantage of registering them, and so have no such documentation to make.

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

Although registration is optional, it can benefit shortcut the housing rental and business access issues when the owner can create a simple document that may often match the owner or landlord. Also, when working with public spaces, it is usually easier to hand over a document using a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting one other party read the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse, argument) in public areas, with onlookers listening in and gathering round the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the device, or game what the law states? Sadly, the answer is "probably yes." In life, there is always room for abuse and individuals can try 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. Not forgetting the number of people that lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse retail store return policies, or do other bad acts.

However that percentage of abuse, which in service animal laws is hopefully small, might just be a very small price to pay when compared to the higher purpose of promoting access and equality for those.

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