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

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 pet dog at a restaurant they don't believe is really a "real" service dog, or others complain that the neighbors possess a pet in a "no pet" building because they claimed your pet is esa letter.

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

How can this affect people who legitimately own and make use of a service animal to raised their lives? In many ways.

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

Some landlord and business owners have begun requesting proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or any other 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 therefore have no such documentation to produce.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and business people that make registrations services just like 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 when the owner can create a simple document which will often match the owner or landlord. Also, when utilizing public spaces, it's easier to give a document with a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting the other party browse the information, rather than having a long-winded protracted conversation (or worse yet, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering around the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the system, or game what the law states? Sadly, the reply is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse the ones can attempt to take advantage of many systems that individuals as a society applied 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 folks who lie on their tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse store return policies, or do other bad acts.

But that percentage of abuse, which in the area of service animal laws is hopefully small, could well be a very small investment when compared to the higher objective of promoting access and equality for many.

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