Sadly, some individuals are asking whether "service animal" laws are increasingly being abused by those that want to scam the system.

There have been news stories, articles, opinion pieces and other editorials where people rant and complain about people they believe to be abusing the machine. You hear some complain that they to sit near your pet dog at a restaurant that they don't believe can be a "real" service dog, forms of languages complain that their neighbors have a pet inside a "no pet" building because they claimed the animal is esa doctors near me.

A few of the commentary posseses an indignant tone, and some people are downright angry.

How can this affect people who legitimately own and employ a service animal to better their lives? In many ways.

For one, it can it more challenging to navigate bureaucracy of the world when your claim of your disability as well as your service or emotional support animal's status is questioned. If your landlord or company owner has heard negative stories claiming that many people are abusing the device, it can cause them to look suspiciously at all claimants.

Some landlord and companies have begun seeking proof of status, despite the fact that asking for written or any other evidence is not always legal, although many owners of legitimate service animals and emotional support animals never have taken advantage of registering them, and thus have no such documentation to make.

It is the suspicious attitude and illegal demands of some landlords and business owners that make registrations services such as the Service Animal Registry of California so important legitimate owners.

Although registration is optional, it can help shortcut the housing rental and business access issues if the owner can create a simple document that will often fulfill the owner or landlord. Also, when using public spaces, it is often easier to give over a document using a simple sentence stating, "This can be a service animal" and letting another party see the information, as opposed to having a long-winded protracted conversation (or even worse, argument) in public, with onlookers listening in and gathering round the discussion.

So, perform some people scam the machine, or game what the law states? Sadly, the answer is "probably yes." In your life, there is always room for abuse and individuals can make an effort to take advantage of many systems that we as a society set up to protect the rights of those who need such protection. For instance, many drivers falsely display disabled parking placards to benefit from free and convenient parking. As well as the number of folks who lie on their own tax returns, claim improper tax deductions, abuse retail store return policies, or do other bad acts.

But that percentage of abuse, which in the area of service animal laws is hopefully small, could well be a very small investment when compared to the higher purpose of promoting access and equality for many.

In the end, you can not control any system making it 100% abuse proof. So tolerating the not enough people who scam service animal laws may be the price we gladly pay to ensure that the disabled inside the great condition of California have equal access under law.
