This is bad for people with service animals with disabilities. Emotional and service animals are both important, but are not the same. Stuff like this hurts people that actually need them. I know this is a joke but still.

The sad thing is businesses in NYC don't know the law and are easily scammed. ESA are not covered under the law for public access. Thanks for making things difficult for the folks who rely on the highly trained SD. Obviously the far left take on issues.

ESAs can't be anywhere that a house pet cannot go

It probably would've been beneficial for him to point out at this end of this funny video that under the ADA Federal Law, Emotional Support Animals DO NOT have public access rights. The ONLY animals that are permitted in public are task trained service dogs that help their handlers with medically diagnosed disabilities.

Emotional support animals are not allowed in public, and these websites are complete frauds. Please don't do what this man is doing, it really does impact the reputation of service animal users in public, and it can distract our dogs or miniature horses, which can be a risk to our life

ESA are not allowed everywhere, that is SA or SD or SMH (Service animal, service dog service, miniature horse) you are braking that laws in so many Levels! ESA are only able to live in your home no matter the rules of ring city laws or what animal it is and able to go on plains. I have a Goat for my PTSD (goats help me more then other animals) so it's rude and Insulting to people with real disabilities and need an ESA or SA this is just not ok, and you need to add this to your disclaimer!

This was really cute. Also, Marc, you and that alpaca look like first cousins, not in a bad way, just that I'm pretty sure he's your spirit animal.

Marc has Affluenza. Put him in a padded cell and give him a rope.

ESA's are completely different than Service animals. ESA's are not allowed anywhere public except living spaces and Airplanes. It is illegal to bring an ESA into a public place and can hurt people who actually have Service dogs.

Suckers pay for items on these registry sites when they legally are not worth the materials they are printed on. Save your money. Also, it's illegal in some states to pass your pet off as a service animal. Don't be a fraud!

I'd love to show up with an african goose, one good HONK and the entire place would know I had arrived.

ESA’s are not allowed In public. Fake papers and vest and all that does NOT give them access to stores, restaurants, markets, etc. DO NOT ACTUALLY TAKE AN ESA ANYWHERE NORMAL PETS CANT GO
