To the Editor:

I’m completely towards this enforcement by Publix, particularly for these of us which have gotten their canine ESA licensed. I do know ESA is just not the identical as a service canine, however my canine is educated and is effectively behaved and is labeled as an ESA canine. The issue is available in with different folks simply bringing their common pets in that don’t must convey them in. I do know that is Florida and so they don’t wish to go away them within the automobile. Nicely there’s a giant distinction between that and any person like myself that basically must have my canine with me for emotional help. I feel Publix must re-evaluate their coverage and permit ESA canine which can be labeled and have a famous collar on however different canine could possibly be banned. I don’t see what the massive deal is. My canine walks on the bottom. He doesn’t contact the meals. I don’t know the place persons are getting an issue from. Do these folks not have pets at house? It’s the identical factor. I’ve stopped buying at Publix due to this.
