Sadly, many people are asking whether "service animal" laws are being abused by those that want to scam the machine.

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces as well as other editorials where people rant and complain about people they think 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, or others complain that their neighbors use a pet inside a "no pet" building since they claimed the pet is esa letter.

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

How does this affect those who legitimately own and employ a service animal to higher their lives? In several ways.

For one, it can it harder to navigate bureaucracy on the planet when your claim of a disability along with your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. In case a landlord or business owner has heard negative stories claiming that many people are abusing the machine, it can cause these phones look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and companies have begun seeking proof of status, although asking for written or other evidence might not be legal, although many owners of legitimate service animals and emotional support animals have not taken advantage of registering them, and thus have no such documentation to create.

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 important legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can help shortcut the housing rental and business access issues if the owner can create a simple document that may often fulfill the owner or landlord. Also, when working with public spaces, it's easier to give over a document with a simple sentence stating, "This is a service animal" and letting one other party read the information, instead of having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public places, with onlookers listening in and gathering round the discussion.

So, carry out some people scam the system, or game regulations? Sadly, the answer then is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse the ones can try to take advantage of many systems that we as a society applied to protect the rights of those that need such protection. For instance, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to benefit from free and convenient parking. As well as the number of people that lie on their tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse store return policies, or do other bad acts.

However that percentage of abuse, which in the area of 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 cannot control any system to really make it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the few people who scam service animal laws will be the price we gladly pay to ensure the disabled inside the great condition of California have equal access under law.
