In most instances victims of crime or witnesses who report crimes do not need an attorney. As a victim, assuming that’s the situation, you have an attorney already through the government, whether it’s a city prosecutor, an assistant district attorney, or a Assistant US attorney. But, It...

You don't say how the dog is listed in the divorce decree. If the decree says she gets the dog and it has not been signed by the Judge - don't sign the decree. If the decree says she gets the dog and the Judge has signed the decree then the decree is enforceable. Dogs are considered... Read more »

The animal shelter was in Ardmore, Oklahoma
We had an agreement and I have retained screenshots of the agreement made threw text and the person had 3 puppies total. Agreement was I get a puppy or the price for what the puppy sells for. She refuses to give me a puppy and has sold 2 already and refuses to give me the money
answered on May 3, 2021
You can potentially sue her for breaching that agreement. It won't be cut and dry because it doesn't sound like there's a signed contract, but there are some potential theories of recovery available to you under what you've described.
My neighbor has 7 dogs and she leaves them outside chained to very thin home made dog houses with no bedding/straw/ etc. These are short chains they often get tangled in. I rarely see food and water for these dogs. I called the local sheriff and was told they can not help the shelter situation, (we... Read more »

Most of these laws are covered under city municipal codes and not under state law (your local sheriff is enforcing state law not city codes). The state statute that would be closest to your situation is 21 OS §1685 which states "... deprive any such animal of necessary food, drink, shelter,... Read more »

A dog is still considered personal property. A sales receipt or registration with your name on it would go a long was to you being able to show an officer you have possessory interest.
answered on Apr 22, 2020
Normally, law enforcement can take possession of a dog if hasn't been inoculated, spayed, or neutered, or if it is "at large", has bitten someone, or is deemed dangerous, and yes, at least under Tulsa Municipal Ordinances (Title 2, Section 109), there are reclaiming and impoundment... Read more »

That could be cruelty to animals. On the flip side you may be disturbing the peace. Find a way to quiet the dogs and avoid conflicts.
I have been unable to find legal representation. The police dept will not file a report unless I have verified my dog’s identity in person. I have 10 years of vet records. Please help.
answered on Oct 29, 2019
You may be able to file a "replevin" action in small claims. This demands return of a thing or animal.
You should be able to handle yourself without an attorney. The trick is to name the legal name of the entity and show up with records and witnesses at the hearing.

The answer to your question depends on the definition of "animal cruelty" under Oklahoma statutory law. If you are still interested in learning whether the vet's treatment is covered, hire a lawyer who specializes in animal law in Oklahoma.

Were you ever married to the ex?
If you were married to the ex, then it depends on whether the dog was separate property or marital property. If the dog was separate property, then, the ex may keep the dog. If the dog was marital property, then you have a claim to the dog.
