Summary: This map covers states with laws on fraudulent assistance animal in housing. These laws establish a procedure for requesting an emotional support animal or other assistance animal in housing for a person with a disability and also establish a penalty for fraudulently claiming an assistance animal. As of 2021, only nine (9) states have such laws. This laws are different from laws that penalize individuals for falsely presenting their pets as service animals in places of public accommodation (that map can be found here). The state of Iowa has a new law that establishes a state procedure for assistance animal requests, but does not create a penalty for false representation.
