If I live in a city or town which bans my assistance animal because of its breed, are my housing rights protected by the Fair Housing Act?
Again, No! Though a town or city may impose a breed ban upon pets, the same cannot be applied to any service animal or Emotional Support Animal. The city could be held liable for violating the Fair Housing Act if they in fact subjected the disabled resident’s assistance animal to their breed ban. Many cities and towns mistakenly believe they are subjected to ADA laws only.
