Sadly, many people are asking whether "service animal" laws are being abused by people who 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 system. You hear some complain that they had to sit near your pet dog at a restaurant that they don't believe is really a "real" service dog, forms of languages complain that their neighbors use a pet inside a "no pet" building since they claimed the pet is esa doctors near me.

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

How can this affect those who legitimately own and make use of a service animal to raised their lives? In lots of ways.

For one, it could it harder 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. In case a landlord or business proprietor has heard negative stories claiming that many people are abusing the machine, it can cause them to look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and business owners have begun asking for proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or another evidence might not be legal, and although many those who own 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 vital to legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it will also help shortcut the housing rental and business access issues if the owner can produce a simple document which will often satisfy the owner or landlord. Also, when using public spaces, it is often easier to hand over a document with a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting another party see the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering around the discussion.

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

However that percentage of abuse, which around service animal laws is hopefully small, could well be a very small price to pay when compared to the higher purpose of promoting access and equality for all.

In the end, you cannot control any system to really make 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 within the great condition of California have equal access under law.
