U.S. Department of Transportation Service Animal Relief Attestation Form - Sample

Airlines that require the DOT service animal relief attestation forms must make the forms available to passengers on their website in an accessible format. DOT is providing a sample accessible fillable PDF version of the DOT service animal relief attestation form.  Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available for download free of charge at, is needed to open the PDF version of the DOT service animal form.  

Although DOT is providing this form in PDF format, DOT encourages airlines to use an accessible web format such as HTML for the form. Typically, for usability reasons, an accessible web format rather than PDF is used by entities when the data entered onto a form is received by the entity posting the form. Also, using an accessible web format, like HTML, has the added benefit of ensuring that the form is accessible on mobile devices.
