What is required in California to get a companion animal to aid depression caused by long-term disability?

Animal Doctors
diamondcattoy asked:

Its been suggested that I get a theraputic companion animal for mom. I am concerned that my apartment manager may ask me to move from our “no pets” complex if I do. Can anyone direct me to a website with info on disabled persons rights to have companion animals in California? Is there a specific form for the doctor to fill out? Is there any state or federal licensure requirements? What kind of animals qualify as companion animals? Is there a specific type of doctor to see? Thank for taking the time to read my question.
