Finding rental housing in Arizona as a pet owner can be a challenge. People recovering from psychological trauma often need their pets for emotional support, but not all landlords are accommodating. Federal and state laws provide some rights to pet owners who certify their pets as Emotional Support Animals (ESA).
Public access, travel, and workplace laws can also be confusing when it comes to comfort animals, which do not enjoy the same rights as service animals, but they do have protection from rental property pet policies under federal Fair Housing Laws.
You can be evicted for bringing an uncertified Emotional Support Animal in Arizona into a rental unit. Not to mention all the fees, fines, and court costs you’ll be responsible for paying. Landlords must adhere to the laws pertaining to them, however, or face penalties of their own.
American Service Pets helps people get the certification they need for rental housing, public access, and traveling with their support system. Pet deposits and extraneous fees no longer apply.
