    Emotional Support Animal

    My little sister suffers from depression and anxiety. Her doctor wrote her a letter saying she has a right to an emotional support animal, but our landlord refused to have any pets on the property. I read that in america, the landlord must let the tenant have a pet if they have a doctors letter. What are our rights in australia?

    I am unfamiliar with laws in Australia however in the US, just because a doctor states that a patient has a right to have an animal, doesn't necessarily mean the landlord must allow her to have it. Having an animal could be considered a right if an individual has a disability and needs the animal to function as a member of society.
