Hi,

This may seem like a dumb question, but I'm wondering if my hedgie can qualify as an emotional support animal (ESA) if the state I am living in considers him to be illegal? I am currently in grad school in Florida and have to move to New York for fieldwork in a few months.

I have had Ed for just over 2 years now and am so attached to him :cry:. I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety for 5 years, so I wouldn't just be trying to "play the system." I truly just want to bring my little buddy with me when I move to an unfamiliar place, but I know them being illegal is a big issue.

Does anyone have any insight or similar experience?

Hm, I'm not really sure. I don't usually condone keeping hedgehogs in illegal states, but NY is very weird. Only the 5 boroughs it's illegal but long island and the rest of NY it is legal. I know how you feel. I say it doesn't hurt to ask. I wish they just made it simpler by just making it legal all around :roll: Best of luck and let us know what happens!
