Getting an ESA and ESA Letter in Washington State is possible for anyone that is challenged with a mental or emotional disability.
Washington State has friendly rules and regulations around emotional support animals and helping people with mental or emotional disabilities.
Washington State understands that coping with these illnesses can be challenging and recognizes how beneficial a support animal can be to coping.
Like many other states Washington State has mostly adopted federal regulations with respect to emotional support Animals.
Next we'll review each aspect of Washington State law that has to do with emotional support animals and help you get a sense of your rights as well as the benefits you can expect with having an emotional support animal in Washington State.
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.
Unfortunately there is no law in Washington State that says you can take an emotional support animal to work with you. Unlike other states ESAs are not a protected class when it comes to bringing your furry friend to your workplace.
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 accommodation for your ESA in Washington State.
