Obtaining an emotional support animal (ESA) letter in New Mexico online has never been simpler, especially with the help of a telehealth service such as Pettable. All you need to do to get the process started is to connect with one of our licensed mental health professionals (LMHPs), who are all authorized to practice in your state. If, during this consultation, they determine that you are eligible for an emotional support animal, they can write you an official ESA letter.

* 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.
If you are one of the millions of Americans living with an emotional disability or mental health condition, an emotional support animal could potentially improve both your mental well-being and your quality of life. New Mexico law and federal law stand by your side by protecting your right to live anywhere with your emotional support animal – even in rental properties with “no pets” policies.
New Mexico residents with assistance animals (e.g., service animals or ESAs) are guaranteed equal access to housing opportunities. This is thanks to the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As long as you can provide a legitimate ESA letter, your landlord must make reasonable accommodations for you to live with your emotional support animal. Your emotional support animal letter also exempts you from any pet fees, deposits, and breed or weight restrictions that your housing provider might otherwise impose.
Unfortunately, although service animals are permitted to access almost any public place with their owners, emotional support animals are not offered the same privileges. This includes shops, restaurants, libraries, cinemas, hospitals, and hotels, as well as commercial aircraft and even workplaces. If you'd like your ESA to accompany you to an establishment that is not overtly pet-friendly, you must ask the person in charge if they would be willing to accommodate you and your emotional support animal. This could be the owner or manager of the establishment, an airline representative, or your boss. It may be a good idea to bring along your ESA letter to strengthen your case.
Be prepared, however, to accept their decision – whatever it may be. In the case of air travel, this may mean paying the airline’s usual fees so that your ESA can fly as an ordinary pet.
To qualify for an emotional support animal in New Mexico, a mental health professional licensed in your state must evaluate your symptoms and conclude that you have a mental or emotional disability, as well as a disability-related need for an emotional support animal. If they do, they'll make it an official part of your mental health treatment plan and write you an ESA letter that you can use for housing and other purposes.
