Based on trainings I have taken, if a support animal is too aggressive or causing too many problems in your property you can allow for the reasonable accommodations but request there’s a different animal. Similar to what would happen with a live in aide that was breaking the rules, you could ask someone they have a different live in aide. I highly suggest everyone speaks with an attorney or their property attorney regarding these types of issues as often times you need to treat them on a case by case basis and it is best to obtain legal advise.

Legally, I do not believe you can if they have a note from a physician or medical professional saying it is needed. BUT you can still hold that pet and the owner accountable. They have to still follow all pet rules and regulations like anyone else, but I do not believe you can refuse.

As a Regional I call and verify every doctors note for legitimacy. Many times the doctors arent aware of other ESAs in the house, or their implication of falsehood (it's a class B misdemeanor in Utah for fake ESAs). It doesnt always work but it helps.

Indiana has an amazing code that the ESA has to “prescribed” by a doctor who is giving you consistent treatment for your support need. This way we don’t have the phony letters you can pay for

In NC, we wrote a bill for ESA's this year and modeled it mostly after the Indiana bill. It passed in the House and it is headed to the Senate now.
