Emotional Support Pets Are Service Animals Too!

This petition had 286 supporters


I wrote a letter to Greyhound asking about allowing a dog in a carrier to be able to travel as an emotional support pet. Here was their response:

Dear Customer,

 Thank you for contacting our offices with your concerns.

 Regarding to your question about our policies on animals. No dogs, cats, birds, or other animals will be transported.  However, a service animal, trained for the purpose of accompanying a customer with a disability, will be permitted to travel at no additional charge. Emotional support animals are not considered service animals.

Sincerely,

Mr. Zapata

Customer Care Analyst

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but, since mental illness IS a disability, shouldn't emotional support pets be considered service animals as well? Why should those with anxiety and PTSD suffer just because of an ignorant rule? Please help me change this rule as I believe it is wrong and discriminatory.
