Sadly, many people are asking whether "service animal" laws are now 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 can be a "real" service dog, or others complain that their neighbors use a pet in a "no pet" building since they claimed your pet is esa doctors near me.

Some of the commentary has an indignant tone, plus some people are downright angry.

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

For one, it could it more challenging to navigate bureaucracy on the planet 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 many people are abusing the system, it can cause these phones look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and business people have begun asking for proof of status, even though asking for written or any other evidence isn't necessarily legal, although many people who just love legitimate service animals and emotional support animals never have taken advantage of registering them, and therefore have no such documentation to make.

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 important legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can help shortcut the housing rental and business access issues once the owner can certainly produce a simple document that will often fulfill the owner or landlord. Also, when using public spaces, it is often easier to hand over a document using a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting one other party see the information, rather than having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public areas, with onlookers listening in and gathering across the discussion.

So, carry out some people scam the machine, or game regulations? Sadly, the answer then is "probably yes." In everyday life, there is always room for abuse the ones can make an effort to take advantage of many systems that individuals as a society set up to protect the rights of those that need such protection. As an example, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to benefit from free and convenient parking. Not forgetting the number of folks who lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse retail store return policies, or do other bad acts.

But that percentage of abuse, which around service animal laws is hopefully small, might just be a very small investment when compared to the higher objective of promoting access and equality for all.

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 make sure that the disabled in the great state of California have equal access under law.
