A service animal is usually a dog that is trained to work and perform tasks to help a person with a disability. This can vary from mental to physical or psychiatric, and therapy and service animals help people stay calm during stressful times like in large crowds, or flying on an airplane. In 2014, a someone brought their therapy animal onto the plane with them and it didn’t go so well.
11. Boa Constrictor
Before you freak out, it should be noted that this is one of the smaller breeds of Boa Constrictor. This red-tailed boa constrictor named Redrock rides around on his owners neck. Daniel Greene is an epileptic and the 5-foot snake alerts him 3 minutes before he is about to have a seizure. Daniel says that Redrock must detect an increase in his blood pressure or changes in his body and senses it.
A reporter in New York has an alpaca named Sorpresa as her therapy animal, and she actually went around New York to various stores and random places to find out which of the stores would let her and Sorpresa in.
It is proven that animals help alleviate loneliness, lower our blood pressure and reduce stress. And our furry friends come in all shapes and sizes! Meet Daniel Turducken Stinkerbutt, an actual Duck in the world that is also a registered emotional support animal. His owner is a woman named Carla Fitzgerald, who got Daniel back in 2012. He helped her get through a terrible accident she had been through.
Having a dog as an emotional support animal is the most common and most people don’t think of it as strange. After all, dogs are one of the most popular pets in the world and like I mentioned before, can be approved under the ADA guidelines. But in 2016, a woman found herself face to face with a really large Dalmatian that was serving as a therapy pet for a person on a plane.
7. Bonnet Macaque
For lack of a better term, a Bonnet Macaque is an “Old World Monkey”, and one that is actually pretty rare and hard to get. They’re found in the southern part of India, and their distribution to other parts of the world is extremely limited because of the illegal pet trade. However Debby Rose is a founder of Wild Things Exotic Animal Orphanage and she cares for nearly 20 monkeys.
6. Pot Bellied Pig
This particular pig, named Elvis, is a bit of a question mark in regards to whether he actually is a service animal or not. The owner, Alisha Doolittle, is wanting to use Elvis to as her service animal because she is blind. However, the city she lives in is fighting her because in their eyes, Elvis is a farm animal and nothing else.
It may seem a little strange, but a Parrot actually has a bit of an advantage on certain other therapy animals. Mainly because of its ability to communicate. Jim Eggers had an extreme case of Bipolar Disorder, he would get into a full-on rage and would want to hurt people. His parrot Sadie, was assigned to him, and was taught to speak certain phrases.
Squirrels aren’t just cute critters running around! Ryan Boylan has a squirrel named Brutus who has been there for him since he was in a car accident in 2004 that left him with trauma.
3. Appaloosa Horse
Humans and horses have been together for thousands of years, and we can have great bonds with them. But that being said, that doesn’t mean you should take them all over the world with you, but for Cheryl Spencer, that’s exactly what she does with her Appaloosa horse named Confetti.
One of the most famous emotional support animals of all time is a Turkey. This occurred when a woman brought the Turkey on board and claimed it as a “Therapy Pet”. Naturally, people saw the Turkey and started to take pictures of it, which spread news of the bird all over the world.
To you, this might seem like an unbelievable thing, but it’s true, there have been people who have gotten Kangaroos as service animals. And no, not all of them are in Australia. Diana Moyer is the proud owner of a young kangaroo in Wisconsin, but they were kicked out of a McDonald’s because the animal didn’t meet their “health and safety” rules.
