Caring for Your ESA 

We all want our ESAs and service animals to be cared for in the humanely and healthiest manner possible. Humans are responsible for their ESA, which means cleaning up after the animal and avoiding creating a public nuisance that affects other people, like a barking dog.

If a person is having difficulty affording food and veterinary care for the animal, there are programs in most communities and nationwide that can help. Below are some links of such organizations that can help with both food and veterinary care for animals. The links with an asterisk (*) have comprehensive lists of national programs.
