Sadly, many people are asking whether "service animal" laws are now being abused by people who want to scam the system.

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces and other editorials where people rant and complain about people they believe to be abusing the system. You hear some complain that they to sit near your dog at a restaurant they don't believe is a "real" service dog, varieties complain that the neighbors possess a pet in a "no pet" building since they claimed the animal is how to ask doctor for emotional support animal.

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

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

For one, it can it more difficult to navigate bureaucracy on the planet when your claim of the disability as well as your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. In case a landlord or company owner has heard negative stories claiming that some individuals are abusing the system, it can cause them to look suspiciously whatsoever claimants.

Some landlord and business owners have begun seeking proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or other evidence might not be legal, although many those who own legitimate service animals and emotional support animals have not 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 just like the Service Animal Registry of California so vital to legitimate owners.

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

So, carry out some people scam the machine, or game the law? Sadly, the reply is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse and people can try to take advantage of many systems that individuals 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 benefit from 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.

But that percentage of abuse, which in service animal laws is hopefully small, is arguably a very small price to pay when compared to the higher goal of promoting access and equality for all.

In the end, you can not control any system to really make it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the not enough people who scam service animal laws is the price we gladly pay to ensure that the disabled in the great condition of California have equal access under law.
