At Bay Garden Manor Condominium, a no-pets community in Miami Beach, Fla., dogs and cats are showing up in condos because of a loophole that lets owners keep them if they can prove the animals are needed for "emotional support." "It's almost an epidemic here at the Beach," says property manager George Zamora. "It's highly suspect when people start asking whether or not they can have a pet, and all of a sudden, they show up and say they need emotional support. If you legitimately have an issue, you don't ask."
