Psychological trauma makes life more challenging in many ways, and one of them is finding a cooperative landlord when you have an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). Federal and Ohio state laws provide rights to pet owners who certify their pets as Emotional Support Animals in Ohio, including equal access to rental housing.
Emotional Support Animals don’t enjoy the same rights as Psychiatric Service Animals (PSAs), which can perform life-saving tasks, but they do have some rights under Federal Fair Housing laws regarding rental property. ESA owners need to understand their state’s laws and federal regulations covering housing, public access and travel.
American Service Pets helps people get the ESA letter they need for rental housing, public access, and traveling with their ESA. Find out if you qualify for an ESA or PSA letter with our simple test. It’s all you need to enjoy the rights provided for Emotional Support Animals in Ohio.
