Sadly, many people are asking whether "service animal" laws are now being abused by people who 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 feel to be abusing the machine. You hear some complain they had to sit near a dog at a restaurant they don't believe can be a "real" service dog, varieties complain that their neighbors use a pet in the "no pet" building since they claimed your pet is emotional support animal letter.

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

So how exactly does this affect people who legitimately own and use a service animal to raised their lives? In several ways.

For one, it could it more difficult to navigate bureaucracy on the planet when your claim of your disability along with your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. In case a landlord or business proprietor has heard negative stories claiming that some individuals are abusing the machine, it can cause them to look suspiciously in any way claimants.

Some landlord and business people have begun asking for proof of status, although asking for written or another evidence isn't necessarily legal, although many people who just love legitimate service animals and emotional support animals never have 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 business owners 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 certainly produce a simple document which will often fulfill the owner or landlord. Also, when working with public spaces, it's easier to give a document using a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting one other party see the information, rather than having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse, argument) in public areas, with onlookers listening in and gathering across the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the device, or game what the law states? 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 people as a society applied to protect the rights of those that need such protection. For example, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to benefit from free and convenient parking. Not to mention the number of folks who 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, might just be a very small investment when compared to the higher purpose of promoting access and equality for all.

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