The process of obtaining an ESA letter online in Missouri is very straightforward, and saves you the hassle of waiting in traffic or long lines for an in-person appointment. If you use a telehealth platform such as Pettable, we’ll set up a video appointment for you with one of our licensed mental health professionals (LMHPs). This therapist will conduct an individualized assessment to determine whether you qualify for an emotional support animal, and will write you an ESA letter if you do.

If you struggle with a mental or emotional disability, you may find that an emotional support animal can be a powerful coping mechanism. Missouri law and federal law are empathetic to the challenges of living with mental illness, and protect your right to live anywhere with your emotional support animal, including in a rental property.
If you’re an ESA owner, you probably already know that public establishments are under no legal obligation to accommodate emotional support animals – only service animals. This includes stores, restaurants, theaters, museums, libraries, hospitals, hotels, and workplaces.
If you wish to bring your emotional support animal with you to a place that is not explicitly pet-friendly, your best option is to have your ESA letter on hand. Although the venue is not required to admit your emotional support animal, the owner or manager (or your boss) may be willing to make an exception if you can present a valid ESA letter to help explain your situation.
This also includes commercial aircraft (under the Air Carrier Access Act), so if you’re hoping to fly with your ESA, you should contact the airline well in advance of your travel date. If they do not accept ESAs on board, your ESA may still be able to travel with you as an ordinary pet, subject to the airline’s pet fees and policies.
Thankfully, housing legislation is more lenient to ESA owners. Specifically, you have the right to have your emotional support animal live with you, even in a rented apartment with a “no pets” policy. According to the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), housing providers must make reasonable accommodations for any tenant (or potential tenant) who provides a legitimate ESA letter. The landlord must also waive their usual pet charges, and even breed and weight restrictions.
In order for your companion animal to be officially recognized as an emotional support animal with an ESA letter, a mental health professional who is licensed to practice in Missouri must conduct an assessment of your mental health. They will evaluate your symptoms and determine whether you have a disability-related need for an emotional support animal to help you cope with your condition.
