MSA SERVICES INC provides services (defined below) subject to the following Terms and Conditions, which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. By accessing and using this website or services, you accept and agree to be bound by these terms. In addition, if you choose to use any materials with references to MyServiceAnimal.org (regardless of their source, i.e., either made by you or purchased from a third party), use any of the materials we sell or provide on our website (including, but not limited to, identification cards, certificates, patches, animal tags, etc.), or refer to MyServiceAnimal.org in any way online or offline, these terms and conditions apply.
Our purpose is to create a platform through which individuals can register Service Animals, Emotional Support, and Therapy Animals in an accessible, secure public database and purchase valuable products to identify such animals to the public and make the utilization of such animals easier and more convenient for their handlers.
Additionally, we may refer customers to a licensed doctor or mental health professional in their state for the purpose of undergoing an evaluation by that mental health professional in accordance with the standard of care applicable to that professional. MyServiceAnimal does not direct or control in any way the manner in which the doctor’s mental health professional conducts the evaluation or the outcome of that evaluation. The manner, scope, and outcome of the evaluation are determined solely by the doctor or mental health professional.
Finally, you may purchase a service dog training on your own.
Registration is conducted under the honor system, and any individual found to violate these rules will be expelled from the registry. The registry is not intended to be a certification process, and we do not judge the proficiency of our registrants in any way, nor would that be necessary under the law. We do not investigate the training or abilities of any animal that is registered through our platform and do not provide any warranties concerning the abilities or training of such animals. We are not responsible or liable for the actions of any animal registered through our platform or utilizing any of the products sold through our website.
In addition, where it is necessary that the handler of an animal registered through our platform is required to have a disability that necessitates the need for a Service Animal, we do not investigate the nature of the disability or require the user to disclose this disability.
However, users certify by registering a Service Animal that the animal the user registering is an animal that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Users further certify that the work or task that the Service Animal has been trained to provide is directly related to the individual’s disability. By registering an Emotional Support/Assistance Animal, users certify that the animal they are registering is an animal that works, provides assistance, or performs tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability, or provides emotional support that alleviates one or more identified symptoms or effects of a person’s disability for a person who has a disability-related need for such support.

We believe that Service Animal, Assistance Animal, and Therapy Animal teams must behave in an exemplary fashion at all times, and we may not be held liable in any way for the actions of our members or their animals either online or offline, as they are 100% responsible for themselves at all times.
