An emotional support animal is a “reasonable accommodation” for a person with a disability under HUD's Fair Housing Act (FHA). An emotional support animal is not a pet, rather it is a companion animal that provides therapeutic benefit to an individual with a disability which significantly limits a person’s major life activities.

We fully comply with HUD's 2020 guidance for rental housing requiring clinicians to have active therapeutic care and personal knowledge of the tenant's disability when providing reliable written verification of their disability-related benefit for an assistance animal. Personal knowledge is the knowledge used to diagnose, advise, counsel, treat, or provide health care or other disability-related services.

With many clients, this is their first time with mental health care therapy, and we appreciate the thoughtfulness and consideration that went into undertaking this journey.

Disability-Related Need for an Assistance Animal.

To be legitimately issued a reliable emotional support animal letter of recommendation, an individual must have a "disability and disability-related need" for an assistance animal. A nexus, or connection, between the animal and the disability must be assessed and verified. Disabilities, or functional limitations, include any mental or psychological disorder, such as intellectual disability, emotional or mental illness, and specific learning disabilities.

Other impairments – based on specific facts in individual cases -- may also substantially limit at least one major life activity or bodily function, such as

  • seeing
  • hearing
  • walking
  • breathing
  • performing manual tasks
  • caring for one’s self
  • learning
  • speaking
  • working
  • sleep
  • concentration
  • social interaction
  • and focus

The following example demonstrates how an animal ameliorates the client's disability.

A symptom of Johnny Doe's PTSD is anxiety, causing a significant impact on the major life activity of sleep. Thankfully, John's dog Rover helps ameliorate his anxiety, thereby allowing John to sleep better. Conversely, without his dog, John's anxiety and sleep trouble increase.

Conversely, if you're looking to save a few dollars on pet fees, are being evicted because you didn't disclose your pitty at lease signing, or the like, unfortunately, you're not going to be approved.

The clinician will also determine if the animal does work, performs tasks, provides assistance, and/or provides therapeutic emotional support.
