If we believe the ID is not authentic and your dog is not truly a service animal the proper authorities will be notified and you will be charged the full $250 security deposit. This may seem harsh, however my mother has a licensed service dog and we are aware of the fact that there are many fake IDs out there that cause problems for those truly in need.
