About Us | Rim of the World Comfort Pets, Inc
Let me explain a little bit about comfort pets. They're similar to service dogs, and they are allowed on most campuses. Comfort pets can be nearly any pet, usually a cat or a dog. These animals are approved through the Student Disabilities Department based upon levels of anxiety, proof of need, and a doctor's recommendation. The animals have to be trained. Of course, they have to be house trained, leash trained, and also nondestructive to the dorms. The animals also have to be comfortable being alone, and not loud whenever their owner is gone. Dorm mates' allergies are also taken into consideration, and the animal is required to stay in the dorm with the owner, or outside on a leash. The owner is required to clean up after the animal and take proper care of it. If there is any violation, the owner will be asked to remove the animal from the campus. Unlike service dogs, they cannot go into public buildings or classrooms. Lastly, they help enormously with anxiety.At Creature Comfort Animal Clinic we will do our very best to make your pet's stay with us a happy and comfortable experience. We will take care of your pet and their needs as if they were our own. Creature Comfort Animal Clinic staffers are highly experienced and trained to care for your pet and to report any problems to the attending doctors. This is a plus of our hospital, Creature Comfort Animal Clinic, compared to an everyday kennel.Americans have not only embraced the Shultz dictum that happiness is a warm puppy: They’re applying it to warm rabbits, kangaroo rats, pot-bellied pigs, cockatiels and ferrets. And for that matter, to decidedly tepid ball pythons, Cuban rock iguanas and Chilean rose hair tarantulas. The issue here isn’t the type of beastie; it’s that animals equate to happiness, whether you’re at home, in the workplace, or in the stressful milieu that is the modern academy. An increasing number of students believe they benefit from having pets for emotional support or comfort. And those with diagnosed mental health problems—including anxiety, panic attacks and depression—are asserting their to keep them in university residences at campuses such as UC Berkeley.An emotional support animal is an animal (typically a dog or cat though this can include other species) that provides a therapeutic benefit to its owner through companionship. The animal provides emotional support and comfort to individuals with psychiatric disabilities and other mental impairments. The animal is not specifically trained to perform tasks for a person who suffers from emotional disabilities. Unlike a service animal, an emotional support animal is not granted access to places of public accommodation. Under the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA), an emotional support animal is viewed as a "reasonable accommodation" in a housing unit that has a "no pets" rule for its residents.
