Emotional Support Animals in Wisconsin

If you struggle with an emotional or mental health condition, you may be eligible for an emotional support animal in Wisconsin. 

The state is aware of the daily challenges presented to those with mental illness and enforces laws and policies that are considerate of people in this position. This includes striving to protect emotional support animals and their owners.

Wisconsin ESA Housing Laws

Wisconsin follows the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA), which states that landlords cannot deny a potential tenant simply because they have an emotional support animal. The landlord must make reasonable accommodations to allow the ESA to live with their owner, and cannot charge any extra fees for the animal. 

This remains the case even for housing providers who otherwise enforce a "no pets" policy. They also cannot place any breed or weight restrictions on your animal. The only way that a landlord is allowed to refuse an ESA is if the animal poses a direct threat to the safety of others or causes extensive damage to the property or housing unit.

Wisconsin Fair Housing & Employment Act

There is no law in place at this time that requires employers to accept emotional support animals in the workplace. 

However, as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prevents employers from discriminating against employees with disabilities, some do choose to be flexible. It never hurts to ask! 

If you think you'd feel better bringing your support animal to work, show your ESA letter to your employer or HR team and see if they might be willing to make accommodations for you.

Wisconsin's ESA Travel Laws

Early 2021 brought modifications to the Air Carrier Access Act. While it previously protected the rights of both emotional support and service animals to board the cabin of any flight, now only service animals are provided this protection. Airlines are no longer obligated to allow ESAs to board a flight with their owner. 

Some airlines do, however, still choose to accept emotional support animals. You'll need to contact an airline beforehand to find out if they will accommodate your assistance animal. If not, you may still be able to have them fly with you, just as a regular pet in a small carrier underneath your seat. 

Wisconsin public transportation also is not required to accept ESAs. To travel in public or be ensured acceptance in public spaces, an animal needs to be designated as a service dog (more detail on this in the FAQ section).

How Do You Qualify for an ESA in Wisconsin? 

If you're interested in finding out if you qualify for an emotional support animal, your next step is to meet with an LMHP in your state who can evaluate your mental health condition and determine your eligibility. Assuming they find you qualify, they'll write you an ESA letter to legitimize your emotional support animal. 

Pettable's telehealth marketplace makes it convenient for you to connect with an experienced, vetted LMHP without the hassle. All of our clinicians have plenty of knowledge about ESA laws in the state they practice and are familiar with the process of working with clients who own assistance animals.

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!"
