EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS
“Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.” – George Eliot
PET POPULATION PROBLEMS
Every year, millions of cats and dogs are euthanized in our nation’s animal shelters because there are more pets than there are responsible homes for them.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO COMBAT PET OVERPOPULATION:
If you are adding a pet to your family, make sure the pet comes from a legitimate shelter, nonprofit rescue group or a responsible, humane breeder.
Always spay and neuter your pets.
Consider all the responsibilities and consequences of pet ownership before deciding to get a pet and always make a lifetime commitment to your pet.
Educate your children, friends, family members and co-workers about pet overpopulation, adoption and the importance of spaying and neutering.
You can help stop generations of suffering. Have your female pet spayed and your male pet neutered. Don’t allow them to breed and add to the pet overpopulation problem.
LETTERS FOR ESA'S
As much as I wish I could, it is irresponsible and unethical for me to write letters for emotional support animals. I do not have the training and ability to evaluate your animal, your interactions with your animal, the appropriateness of the housing and financial situation, and whether you should be allowed to have one in a place where they are restricted.
It is my policy not to write these types of letters but I will support your decision to get an emotional support animal as much I can.
TWO PROBLEMS AND A BUILT IN SOLUTION
I truly see this connection as an opportunity to help another living creature and help yourself. I would love to help you examine the pros and cons of owning a pet and see if this is an option for you and your life. Helping others, even animals, fulfills something inside of us. Please consider adopting if you are looking to get an emotional support animal. They need emotional support too.
You can make a difference in this world! Even if it is small.
