Did You Know the Benefits of an Emotional Support Animal? Imagine not having to pay pet fees or being able to bring any kind of breed to live with you during these difficult times. To do this, you simply need to acquire legitimate documentation from a licensed mental health professional to certify your pet as an emotional support animal (ESA). Unlike service animals or therapy animals, ESAs don’t need to cost a fortune or undergo months of training to become certified. With an ESA Letter from Emotional Pet Support, you can have your emotional support dog or other pet live with you in your apartment, condo, townhouse, or other type of dwelling.
