An ESA is by your side to offer emotional support. They do not have to provide a physical service. A service animal has a physical skill that helps its owner.
There are no official ESA registration sites or places to register an ESA. This is a common scam on the worldwide web.
No, ESA’s do not have the same rights as a service animal. An ESA can be rejected from entering public places and flights. They can be rejected by landlords without the proper prescription letter from a health care or mental health provider. Once a prescription letter is obtained the ESA cannot be rejected by a landlord. Service animals cannot be rejected in any way, but they must provide a physical skill that helps their owner. Read more from the ADA…
