Washington State ESA Housing Laws

Washington State has adopted the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and protects the rights of emotional support animals when it comes to housing.

The FHA gives people with an emotional support animal the ability to live and keep their pet with them regardless of any rules or policies enacted by landlords. The reason this law exists is to help support people who suffer from a mental or emotional disability to live with their pet as they are a critical component of their mental health treatment.

That said, many organizations are understanding of the need for an emotional support animal. As a result, we encourage you to connect with your HR team to see if they can make a reasonable accomodation for your ESA in Washington State.

I had an incredible experience with Pettable. I had just moved and was looking for a new therapist, but knew an ESA would really help me with the transition, so I came to Pettable to get documentation so I didn’t have to wait months to get approval from my landlord to bring a pet home. The process was straightforward, timely, and made me feel so valid in my journey. Now I am raising a puppy and never been happier and healthier! I can’t recommend Pettable enough!

My pup provides relief in stressful situations, particularly when I'm away on necessary travel. Pettable was an amazing resource, connecting me with a therapist who listened to my situation and provided advice above and beyond. I could hear Rhiana's compassion over our call and appreciated her patience. Grateful for this service!"
