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

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces and other editorials where people rant and complain about people they feel to be abusing the machine. You hear some complain that they had to sit near your dog at a restaurant which they don't believe is a "real" service dog, or others complain that their neighbors use a pet inside a "no pet" building simply because they claimed your 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 people who legitimately own and employ a service animal to higher their lives? In many ways.

For one, it can it more challenging to navigate bureaucracy on the planet when your claim of a disability along with your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If a landlord or business proprietor has heard negative stories claiming that many people are abusing the machine, it can cause these to look suspiciously whatsoever claimants.

Some landlord and companies have begun requesting proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or another evidence might not be legal, and even though many people who just love legitimate service animals and emotional support animals haven't taken advantage of registering them, and thus have no such documentation to make.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and business owners 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 once the owner can create a simple document that will often satisfy the owner or landlord. Also, when utilizing public spaces, it's easier to give over a document using a simple sentence stating, "This is really a service animal" and letting another party browse the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or even worse, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering around the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the machine, or game the law? Sadly, the answer is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse and individuals can try to take advantage of many systems that people as a society put in place to protect the rights of people who need such protection. For example, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to benefit from free and convenient parking. Not forgetting the number of people that lie on their tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse shop return policies, or do other bad acts.

But that percentage of abuse, which in the area of 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 all.

In the end, you cannot 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 that the disabled in the great state of California have equal access under law.
