The speed limit on my road is 15 mph! The person who ran him over NEVER stopped or turned around after obviously running a dog over. My dog was ran over right beside our mailbox, basically in my YARD. the truck that ran him over should have been on the right side of the road but my dog was on the... Read more »
Oh my gosh. That is terrible and I am so sorry for your loss. You should report this to the Police and the District Attorneys Office and see if you can get them to pursue animal cruelty charges against this person. As for a civil case, unfortunately animals are treated as property and valued as...Read more »

We moved in with an uncle when he asked us to help him take care of his dying partner (bone cancer) shortly after his passing he kicked us out and said he would keep our dog until we were in a good place. We found out he had him chipped and now he will not give him back to us. We've had our... Read more »

This lady came back am hour after running my dog over wanting money. I think if my dog is hurt or dead she should pay me for... Read more »

My friend and I, along with our roommate, adopted a cat. The adoption papers are in the roommate's name, but we equally split the cost of the adoption fee, vet bills, and our apartment pet fee. Our roommate is now moving out and says she is going to take the cat. Can she legally do this? Or... Read more »
The cat is property. Cats are not actually "adopted" under Alabama law. The documents which transferred ownership of the cat probably show that she owns the cat. UNless you can show that you own the cat, you are probably out of luck.
Interesting question. I know of no reason why you couldn't do that, except that your use of the word "anywhere" is a concern. It would not be wise to do it just anywhere. For example, releasing it in a residential area or near a school would be a bad idea. The best location would...Read more »
Around 9:45 pm on Jan 21,2017, I was walking my dog on her leash down a public side street in my town when a large black or blue blur came running up to me and my dog. I pulled my dog close to me and started to jog away from the dog. The dog then ran around us barking so I turned around to walk... Read more »
Notify your homeowners insurance. If you don't have homeowners then you'd want to consult an attorney, but I would suggest you start with a bankrupcy attorney not that you need to file now but you need to know your options. In the meantime I would avoid talking to anyone from the Fedex...Read more »
The were basically complaining that my dog was watching them over the fence.She told me her dog would kill my dog if she jumped over the fence. My dog never jumped over the fence. They sent harassing text messages and even came over to do nothing but complain after I haven't talked to them in... Read more »
About a year ago, my mom had to let someone foster her dog due to my father becoming fatally ill. When she had the means and time to take her back, he refused to let her. She has even offered to pay him vet bills (if he's taken her) as well as a paying for her all over again. She has receipts... Read more »
You could certainly go to court over this and say that the dog (which is property in the eyes of the law) was and remains your mother's property. If the other person's defense is simply that she now wants to the dog, then the other person will loose. COntact a lawyer and get all the facts...Read more »
We agreed that he would take care of her a couple weeks and then I would come get her. My best friend, our 3 kids, and myself dropped him and our dog off. He reassured me that he would take good care of her and I ensured him we would stay in touch to check on her. I did call and we texted on... Read more »
I have read about having an exotic pet in the state of Alabama but what I'm confused about is that it specified breeds from outside of the state lines. Does that mean if I get a breed of fox that is native to Alabama it is legal to own as a pet?
It sounds like a bad idea to me. The Alabama Administrative Code contains regulations promulgated by various Alabama State entities. The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has promulgated 220-2-.26 which, among other things prohibits the possession of foxes brought in from...Read more »
