Emotional Support Animal Registration
Service Animal Registration
Emotional support animals help individuals with emotional disabilities such as anxiety or depression by providing comfort and support. Any animal can be an emotional support animal. Federal law does not require these animals to have any specific training and you do not have to be physically disabled to have an emotional support animal.
• The animal should have good social skills if taken in public places.
Service animals must be trained to perform a task for an owner with a disability or medical condition. The disability does not have to be visible. Dogs and miniature horses can be service animals. You do not need note from a doctor for a service animal.
Examples of tasks that can be performed by a service animal include:
• Alerting to sounds

Need a Doctor’s Letter for Airline Travel and Housing?
In order to prove that an animal is an emotional support animal, you may be asked to provide documentation from a licensed professional (doctor, psychiatrist, or other mental health professional) stating that the animal is an essential part of treatment for a disability. A landlord or business may ask you to provide a doctor’s note or they could deny you and your emotional support animal. All airlines require a doctor’s note.
Regardless of whether you are asked to show a doctor’s letter, it is very helpful to have one on file just in case.
