WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SERVICE ANIMALS & EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS?

Under Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), a Service Animal is defined as, "any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability" (28 CFR 35.104.). However, within Title II, Emotional Support Animals are specifically excluded from the definition of Service Animal as follows: "The crime deterrent effects of an animal's presence and the provision of emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship do not constitute work or tasks for the purposes of this definition."
