It’s no surprise that animals do so much for our well-being. From keeping us active to lifting our spirits, our lives are made richer and more fulfilled by our animals.
Some animals are trained to help humans perform tasks or to help identify warning signs of a physical illness. These animals are the special fur-people known as service animals.
These are the dogs often supporting vests to help identify their vocation and to let people around them know they are on the job. It’s important not to interfere or distract these animals since someone depends on them.
On the other hand, emotional support animals perform a completely different function. These are animals who provide comfort to their human.
Connecting with a doctor is often the first step to registering an animal as an ESA and can provide an incredibly valuable service. The companionship an animal can provide can transform the life of their owner. However since they have not been specially trained for this, they are allowed in some, but not all, public areas.
