Emotional support animal registration process
In order to complete an ESA dog registration (or, actually, any other animal), you will need an emotional support animal letter from a licensed mental health professional. It is also known as an ESA letter, which proves that a person has some kind of emotional trauma and requires a companion that helps them deal with it.
After getting a note from the therapist, registering the emotional support animal (ESA) becomes possible. To do that, you need to fill in a registration form on our website where you indicate all the required info – the name, type, and breed of an animal, the name of a handler, address details (state, city, and home address), and the photo of the pet (this one is optional).

And if you would like to register another kind of dog (a service animal, therapy dog, etc.), you may visit other pages on our website and read all the needed information there. Or, once again, you can call us – it is much easier than trying to figure everything out on your own.
Benefits of emotional support animals registration
As it was already mentioned, unlike a service dog, emotional support animals should always be registered. It is required by the USA laws and cannot be changed. A registration brings numerous benefits both for the pet and the handler. Why?
- Housings with “no pet” policies cannot kick you out just because you are with your ESA. This rule includes hotels, hostels, rented apartments, and any other type of accommodation. A landlord cannot charge you extra because you are staying with a pet, as well as they cannot tell you to pay more for cleaning services. The only situation acceptable is if your animal damaged something and you should pay for it;
- You do not need to pay a fee at the airport if you have to fly with your ESA. All you need to do is to provide employees with a copy of your ESA letter and fill in a special form 48 hours before the flight. An important aspect – your pet should be perfectly trained and behave well during the flight;
- You can spread awareness about this topic among people. And that means fewer uncomfortable questions on the streets, understanding of the whole situation from employees in public places, and federal law protection.
As you can see, the whole process is pretty simple. The main thing here is just to start – and we will help with the rest. Register your emotional support animal now at My Service Animal. Start your unbelievable story today!
