What is an Emotional Support Animal?

An emotional support animal (ESA) is a pet that has been prescribed by a licensed therapist,
psychologist, doctor, psychiatrist or any licensed mental health professional, as part of the
treatment program that it is designed to bring comfort and minimize the negative symptoms
of the person’s emotional or psychological disability.

Emotional Support Animals

All domesticated animals may qualify as Emotional Support Animals (cats and dogs). They can be any age (young puppies and kittens, too!). These animals do not need any specific task-training because their very presence alleviates the symptoms associated with a person’s psychological/emotional disability, unlike a working service dog or therapy dog. The only requirement is that the animal is manageable in public and does not create a nuisance in or around the domestic environment.
