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

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

For one, it could it harder to navigate bureaucracy around the globe when your claim of a disability along with your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If your landlord or business proprietor has heard negative stories claiming that some individuals are abusing the machine, it can cause them to look suspiciously whatsoever claimants.

Some landlord and companies have begun seeking proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or another evidence is not always legal, and although 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 companies that make registrations services like 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 if the owner can create a simple document which will often satisfy the owner or landlord. Also, when working with public spaces, it is usually easier to hand over a document with a simple sentence stating, "This is really a service animal" and letting the other party see the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or even worse, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering round the discussion.

But that percentage of abuse, which around service animal laws is hopefully small, could well be a very small investment when compared to the higher goal 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 is the price we gladly pay to make sure that the disabled within the great state of California have equal access under law.
