“My dog Winnie helps me with my high levels of anxiety, and is able to calm me. Loving Life Service Pets helped get me in touch with a therapist who listened to what I needed and provided valuable information. I still use one of the breathing techniques she taught me. This experience was awesome!”

“I cannot thank my therapist, Loretta, enough for providing me with an emotional support letter for my beloved cat, Mr. Pickles. Loretta has a very deep understanding of how important he is to me and how crucial he is to my happiness, healing and sense of comfort. Mr. Pickles is my absolute everything, he is who I lean on when I am sad, happy, confused, sick, mad etc. When I landed the most amazing apartment at the last minute, I was glad I had a letter from my therapist so that I could bring him with me. We both thank Loretta for being there for us and allowing us to settle into our new place without stress!”

“My fur baby Nalani came into my life exactly when I needed her and so did Loving Life Service Pets. I suffer from extreme anxiety when I am away from my beloved Nalani and choose to stay home on any given evening with her, rather than attend a function. In addition to this, me and my children moved into an apartment that required an ESA acknowledgment. Not only did the therapist I was matched with help me acknowledge the PTSD, Anxiety, and depression I had, but she was able to certify my best friend as an ESA animal. Much love and respect.”

The Laws Have Changed!

Make Sure You're Compliant

What are the new requirements to receive an ESA letter?

State laws require those seeking an ESA or PSD letter to establish a client-provider relationship for at least 30 days prior to providing documentation, which will result in having two consultations before qualifying. Additionally, the individual pursuing a ESA or PSD letter must complete a clinical evaluation to assess the need for the documentation.
