Service animals

Hi, first post here, hope its in correct spot.  I am in the process of screening applicants for my rental house.   I got a call today from  a prospective tenant telling me she has service animals, They served overseas and are required to have them with them.  She was very upfront and honest about the whole situation.  I know I cant discriminate and not allow them to bring animals into house even though I have stated in rental ad  "no pets allowed".   Question is can I charge them a higher deposit becasue they have service animals...Pet deposit basically.  I would really love to rent to these people but really don't want dogs in house,  my only out is they want a 6 month lease and I want a year.  Ron
