* For California residents, effective January 1, 2022, new law AB 468 requires those seeking an ESA letter for dogs to establish a client-provider relationship with the individual for at least 30 days prior to providing documentation, which will result in having two consultations before qualifying.
Emotional support animals (ESAs) — and pets of all kinds — are beloved in the state of Arizona, and unlike service animals, they aren’t limited to just dogs. Any type of domesticated animal, including cats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, and snakes, can be an ESA as long as they provide some relief for your mental health symptoms. Once you’ve gone through the consultation process and received your ESA letter, your new assistance animal can reside with you in any rental home, apartment, or condominium in the state, free of any pet fees or restrictions. If you think an ESA would improve your home life, there’s no better time than now to get your ESA letter with Pettable.
Like many states, Arizona has adopted many of the federal laws and regulations regarding emotional support animals.
Read on for a deeper dive into Arizona's specific laws for housing, travel, work environment, and public access for an assistance animal. We'll help you get all the information you need to understand your rights, protections, and benefits for having an emotional support animal in Arizona.
Arizona respects a person's emotional support animal as being an important part of their treatment plan. The state follows the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA), which allows a person with an ESA or service animal to keep their animal with them in their place of residence, regardless of the landlord's policies or restrictions on pets.
This means that—provided you can produce an ESA letter as verification—a landlord must make reasonable accommodation for your support animal to live with you and cannot charge any extra fees to an ESA owner or impose any weight or breed restrictions. The only exception to this is if your assistance animal poses a direct threat or causes significant damage to the property or housing unit.
No law exists specifying that employers must accommodate an emotional support animal in a work environment. However, they are also not to discriminate against employees based on disability, therefore some employers will welcome an ESA, as they may recognize the benefits of having one for a person's mental health.
If you're unsure if you can bring your ESA to work, bring your ESA letter and talk with your HR department to find out if they are willing to make reasonable accommodation for your ESA in Arizona. Ultimately, this decision is at the discretion of your employer.
To find out if you qualify for an emotional support animal in Arizona, you must meet with a licensed mental health professional. They can evaluate your mental and emotional challenges and evaluate your eligibility.
One of the easiest ways you can do this is by working through a telehealth marketplace like Pettable. We can match you with a vetted professional licensed in your state who has extensive experience conducting mental health assessments for assistance animals and writing ESA letters.
Many rental housing communities and landlords have “no pet” policies that typically prevent residents from keeping animals in their homes, but if you have a legitimate ESA letter, those rules don’t apply. Not only can your ESA live with you in peace, but you’re also exempt from any pet fees, so it’s a smart money-saving move, too.
If you have daily struggles with your mental health, an ESA can help alleviate your symptoms and improve your overall well-being and health. When you experience depression, anxiety, or stress, your ESA can provide you with the best medicine: an animal’s love.
For many people who live alone, an ESA can eliminate the loneliness that comes with flying solo. The affection and companionship of your beloved beast can motivate you to get more active and improve your social life, as well.
Sometimes, your mental health challenges need more than just emotional support, so if you want to get a psychiatric service dog in Arizona, you’ll just need to add service dog training to the process. Once you’ve been diagnosed by a licensed professional, enroll in Pettable’s online PSD training program to give your dog the tools to serve your needs.
