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

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces and other editorials where people rant and complain about people they believe to be abusing the machine. You hear some complain that they had to sit near a dog at a restaurant they don't believe is really a "real" service dog, varieties complain their neighbors possess a pet in the "no pet" building simply because they claimed the pet is how to ask doctor for emotional support animal.

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

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

For one, it could it more challenging to navigate bureaucracy of the world when your claim of a disability as well as your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If a landlord or company 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 business people have begun seeking proof of status, even though 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 produce.

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 important legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can benefit shortcut the housing rental and business access issues if the owner can create a simple document which will often match the owner or landlord. Also, when using public spaces, it is usually easier to hand over a document having a simple sentence stating, "This is a service animal" and letting one other party browse the information, as opposed to 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 device, or game the law? Sadly, the answer then is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse and people can make an effort to take advantage of many systems that we as a society set up to protect the rights of those who need such protection. For example, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to benefit from free and convenient parking. As well as the number of people who lie on their tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse retail store return policies, or do other bad acts.

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

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