I found the perfect apartment near a park and public transportation. I asked for a reasonable accommodation for my service dog, but the landlord told me “no pets –try someplace else.” SoI called HUD and found out it’s illegal for a housing provider to prohibit service animals. I filed a complaint, and now my dog and I have a great place to live.
Fair Housing Is Your Right. Use It.
Landlords must make reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities, such as allowing for service animals or providing an accessible parking space. Report housing discrimination to HUD or your local fair housing center.
