(Cont’d) fee. I qualify for and have an ESA letter from my therapist that I have been seeing and am still currently seeing. Can my complex still charge me a fee? What is the law around ESA regulations and foster animals?
In many places, including New Jersey, "running at large" typically refers to dogs being off-leash and not under control in public areas. On private property, the rules might be different. Generally, property owners have more control over what happens on their own property, including...View More
My husband and I are fostering a dog. The rescue provided us with an 'Important Acknowledgement' document which states we release the rescue group from all claims and liability relating to any alleged statements/behavior about the animal once the animal is in possession. This same... View More
Providing a statement to the police about a dog bite incident may be required for an official investigation. However, before doing so, consult with a personal injury attorney to understand your rights and potential consequences. Be cautious not to admit fault or liability in your statement.
Enforceable? I’ve lived here for 32 years and have always had a cat or two, but they changed their policy to no pets and said that I was grandfathered in. My cat just passed away, and I asked the office to expect a call from a cat rescue, as they wanted to know that I could have a cat. I was told... View More
My dog was attacked and I was bitten (in Florida) when a woman let her dog run out of the house unleashed. She supposedly agreed to pay my urgent care bills. I sent her the bills and she insists on seeing my medical records from the facility. The records indicate that they are private and should... View More
If you were attacked in Florida, then you need to retain counsel here in Florida. Your medical bills wont cover your pain and suffering damages, which they also would need to pay. If they rent or own a home, the dog owner is most likely covered by a liability insurance policy. Don't settle for...View More
they say they do not need my permission to enter my home, i asked if they would wait until i was present to enter the home and they said if i didn’t answer the door they would be allowed to enter anyway.
All lease have a provision for quiet enjoyment which means that a landlord cannot enter an apartment without the tenant's permission unless there is an emergency which must be addressed immediately such as a gas or water leak or the smell of smoke.
Acquaintance from my work got a 6mnth old pitbull puppy and didn't tell the landlord. He found out after the dog chewed the carpet and made her get rid of the dog. When we took the dog it had open wounds all over its body and was missing half her fur. After medications and medicated baths and... View More
The power of attorney needs to specify that she may act on your behalf if you have a mental health issue. She has no authority under the power of attorney to permanently surrender your dogs. If the mental health crisis is over and your therapist with whom you are treating does not feel that you are...View More
I paid for the dog the agreed upon price for the dog and shipping. Then, the transportation company said I had to purchase Pet Insurance for nearly $1000. I contacted the seller and he said this was normal and apologized for not mentioning it earlier. I paid that. Then, the transportation company... View More
We have asked them multiple times to keep the dog in their yard, but they have not done anything. They let him out in the yard with no supervision, and he uses our yard as his toilet. Do we have any recourse?
Unfortunately, unless this person gave you the dog, he still has ownership rights, even if he is a crappy owner. If you suspect the owner neglects or abuses the dog, you could always call animal control. Otherwise, your only option to keep the dog is to offer to buy the dog from him. If he agrees,...View More
A month ago his dog was out while my dog’s were in the car with my dad, his dog ended up biting my dad sending him to the hospital to get stitches. We did nothing just asked our neighbor to fix his fence so this does not happen again. His dog has been out at least twice a week since that... View More

Also have all of the vet bills and 6 out of 8 are on my credit card. The last 4 months (post breakup) I have made a... View More
Do you seriously believe a Court will want to get involved in this matter? I can understand that a dog is almost like a child, but a Judge may not be so tolerant. Perhaps you could give you ex a different dog to try to work this out?
This is not a self-help project! Trying to represent yourself in Court is a bad idea. Not only are you emotionally involved, but you are not a trained attorney. You do not know the Court Rules, Rules of Evidence, case law, nor are you trained how to handle a legal case, especially if litigation is...View More
My son and his wife were staying with us. My son left for the opposite coast and left his dog. My husband walked the dog in our yard and it attacked our neighbor's cat which was in our yard. My husband got the neighbor who took the cat to the vet. She demanded that we get the dog out of the... View More
