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

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces along with other editorials where people rant and complain about people they feel to be abusing the machine. You hear some complain that they to sit near a dog at a restaurant which they don't believe is really a "real" service dog, varieties complain their neighbors use a pet inside a "no pet" building simply because they claimed the animal is esa doctors near me.

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

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

For one, it could it more difficult to navigate bureaucracy around the globe when your claim of the disability and your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If a landlord or business owner has heard negative stories claiming that many people are abusing the device, it can cause these phones look suspiciously at all claimants.

Some landlord and companies have begun asking for proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or other evidence is not always 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 create.

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 help shortcut the housing rental and business access issues when the owner can certainly produce a simple document which will often fulfill the owner or landlord. Also, when using public spaces, it is often easier to hand over a document using a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting one other party read the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or even worse, argument) in public places, with onlookers listening in and gathering around the discussion.

So, do some people scam the machine, or game what the law states? Sadly, the answer then is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse and people can attempt to take advantage of many systems that we as a society set up 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 folks who lie on the tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse retail 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 investment when compared to the higher goal of promoting access and equality for many.

In the end, you can not control any system making it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the few individuals 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.
