ESAGuard Letter Protection™
Our Risk-Free Guarantee.
In five years, and countless letters, just one single letter, only one letter, has been rejected.
We're so confident our letters will be accepted by your landlord, we offer ESAGuard Letter Protection, our Risk Free Guarantee.
Step 1: You’ve Been Issued Our ESA Letter.
When you place an order, you’re purchasing clinical care time to have your disability-related need for an assistance animal assessed, verified, and treated. If therapeutically appropriate, you will be issued an emotional support animal letter of recommendation. Clients are eligible for a refund only after their reasonable accommodation request was twice denied.
Buyer’s remorse and malingering (you're not being truthful with us) are not acceptable reasons for a refund.
Step 2: Our ESA Letter Was Denied.
Way? No way.
Thanks to our commitment to federal guidance, it's an extraordinarily rare event to have a client's request for a reasonable accommodation rejected.
However, if your emotional support animal letter of recommendation is twice rejected by landlord or airline, we’ll credit back 100% of your fees.
Step 3: We Use Good Faith All Around.
- Our letters work. It’s just that simple. **
- From start to finish, we do everything right. Legally, ethically, administratively, and process wise, we fully comply with every single U.S., Canadian, and state regulation (and there are a bunch).
- We abide by the spirit of Fair Housing and rigorously follow HUD's guidelines.
- You'll be under the care and treatment of a nearby provider (this makes all the difference in the world).
- We’re not selling “dirt-cheap $79 letters,” as those are routinely rejected. Marketed to the unwitting consumer, selling letters for a fee is illegal in many states.
- We're not peddling leashes, harnesses, ID tags, or the what-not. We can't register your dog, provide you with a certificate, or any of that nonsense.
Step 4: Landlord Or Airline Told You No Way! Twice, To Be Exact.
"What if the letter doesn't work," you might wonder.
Housing providers are required to engage tenants in an iterative process, which is an ongoing dialogue between tenant and landlord. Landlords cannot just say no, take the ball, and go home. Housing providers need to indicate the specific denial reason(s) and provide an opportunity to cure the problem.
Step 5: So How Does The Refund Work?
- Your paperwork was submitted to your housing provider or airline at least twice. Occasionally, a landlord will reject your first submittal (e.g., seeking additional therapeutic clarification). Don't panic if the first time is a no, it's usually all good.
- Each rejection must be in writing from the landlord or airline (no emails), and then submitted to us, allowing our team to help “cure” any unresolved issue. Sorry about the email requirement, but they can easily be doctored by an ethically flexible consumer.
- If there is a second rejection, qualified clients are now eligible for a full refund.

- You have lied about or misrepresented your need for an assistance animal to our licensed mental health professional or to your housing provider.
- You are acting in a duplicitous or deceitful manner.
- According to HUD's latest guidance, a housing provider must approve/deny a reasonable accommodation request within 10 business days. Therefore, our guarantee is only valid only for 10 business days after the issuance of the emotional support animal letter of recommendation.
