My psychiatrist simply wrote a letter to HOA/Lanlord in a very short concise statement. To better my psychiatric disability she recommended the service animals (two siblings) and they are necessary for my ongoing rehabilitation. Once you are armed with this letter and a print out or two from an ADA page addressing this issue, my new landlord waived the pet 'rent' fees and was happy I had the animals for my ongoing support and assistance.
Hope you get what you need to keep improving your progress. I was just wondering if anyone out there knew what the laws are in PA for a PSD. I am trying to get my dog certified as one and have heard I can train her myself but am willing to find a trainer. I am just severly limited in transportation since I am not allowed. to drive.
