Sadly, some people are asking whether "service animal" laws are being abused by people 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 feel 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 a "real" service dog, forms of languages complain that the neighbors have a pet inside a "no pet" building because they claimed the animal is esa doctors near me.

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

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

For one, it could it harder to navigate bureaucracy around the globe when your claim of the disability along with your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. In case a landlord or company owner has heard negative stories claiming that some individuals are abusing the system, it can cause these to look suspiciously whatsoever claimants.

Some landlord and companies have begun asking for 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 haven't 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 owners that make registrations services like the Service Animal Registry of California so fundamental to legitimate owners.

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

So, do 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 we as a society put in place to protect the rights of those that need such protection. For example, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to take advantage of free and convenient parking. Not forgetting the number of people who lie on the 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, is arguably a very small price to pay when compared to the higher objective of promoting access and equality for all.

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