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

A number of the commentary comes with an indignant tone, plus some people are downright angry.

For one, it can it more difficult to navigate bureaucracy around the globe when your claim of your 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 system, it can cause them to look suspiciously in any way claimants.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and business people that make registrations services 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 once the owner can produce a simple document that may often match the owner or landlord. Also, when utilizing public spaces, it is usually easier to give a document with a simple sentence stating, "This is really a service animal" and letting another party read the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering across the discussion.

In life, there is always room for abuse the ones can try to take advantage of many systems that people as a society applied to protect the rights of those who need such protection.

However that percentage of abuse, which in the area of service animal laws is hopefully small, is arguably a very small investment when compared to the higher goal of promoting access and equality for many.

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 may be the price we gladly pay to ensure the disabled inside the great condition of California have equal access under law.
