An individual seeking a reasonable accommodation for a support animal should provide documentation from a physician, psychiatrist, social worker, or mental health professional addressing that the animal provides support and alleviates one or more of the identified symptoms or effects of an existing disability. Such documentation will be deemed sufficient if it establishes that an individual has a disability and that the animal in question will provide some type of disability-related assistance or emotional support.

Please note that PetScreening is a web-based screening tool and an individual’s disability or disability-related need for an assistance animal is not readily apparent or known to us. In cases where PetScreening becomes aware that a disability is readily apparent or known but the disability-related need for the assistance animal is not, we still require documentation of the disability-related need for an assistance animal.
