Training, Guidelines Needed for Emotional Support Animals

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (08-05-2017) #536: Priscilla Clark from the Connecticut Humane Society talks about their challenges and triumphs; University of Missouri researcher Cassie Boness discusses the lack of training and requirements for emotional support animals — no obedience, no health requirements (vaccinations, etc) total lack of guidelines and much abuse by people claiming they need an Emotional Support Animal (ESA); Blake Kuhre & his wife Adrienne founded the Furry Foundation to save cats in Los Angeles and they made a film about the Buenos Aires cemetery that is home to generations of community cats — a film that will be kicking off the 1st Annual NY Cat Film Festival.
