I bought the kitten for $750, from a person, claiming they were worked with a Cattery. I traveled to the location for the transaction, not at the Cattery. They gave me the wrong gender. Kittens at that age may be difficult to determine the gender without a thorough examination. They acknowledged... Read more »

We live in a severe housing crisis area where local supply for housing is very scarce and extremely difficult to find. We had no other option but to accept the increase otherwise be homeless. Our original rent was supposed to be $3000 a month with a $6000 deposit. After learning of the service... Read more »
A landlord cannot charge you extra pet fees for a service animal. In addition, a landlord can only charge two months' worth of rent for a deposit, unless the house is furnished. Therefore, the charging of $9,000 or $8,000 would likely be illegal.
Hello, my neighbor's cat has been pooping on my property for years, they even litter on my outdoor furniture. I tried to talk to the neighbor but they refused to do anything about it and says that it might be a stray cat somewhere. So I decided to set a humane trap on my back yard. In the next... Read more »
A lot of these animal laws are local and specific. Generally, you should have the right to set the trap on your backyard if the cat is routinely trespassing on your property. You have a right to quiet use and enjoyment of your home. Look at the local codes on animal control in your jurisdiction;...Read more »
We live in California and applied for a rental home in California. The application never asked if we have a service/emotional support animal. It only asked if we have any pets. We both answered no because our dog is an emotional support animal and have an ESA document from my fiancee's... Read more »
We are the owners of a house in San Jacinto that we have bought for our totally disabled son and family. They hired (without our knowledge) a professional dog trainer from Temecula, who charged $400.00 for travel and evaluation for future training of the dog. After taking the dog outside, they...

If your lack of insurance was because of financial challenges, you might have more than you can handle when hiring a Defense Lawyer. S/he will bill on an hourly rate and ask for, I suspect, a sizable retainer. Is that something you can handle?
If you have homeowners insurance, notify it of the claim. If you do not carry insurance, you will have to pay for an attorney out of pocket. An attorney who specializes in civil defense can handle your case. You might also consider bankruptcy if you don't have insurance.
was there with my dog. They boxed me in and last night animal control reached out to me because apparently they are claiming my dog bit them even though apparently there is only a minor injury and no penetration of skin. They told me she will probably be quarantined and I want to know what I can do... Read more »
You and your dog are not victims. You are 100% responsible for your dog's behavior, whether it bit someone, or clawed someone, and regardless of whether the boys walked or SPRINTED past you. Boys walk, run, sprint and are boisterous in public and are entitled to act like teenagers without...Read more »
Due to the Craigslist's dog seller advertised the puppy was a teacup maltese and the parents were not more than 5lbs, i paid $3000 when i picked up the puppy when she was about 2 months old. But the puppy started to grow bigger, even when i took her to the vet to get her second shot vaccines,... Read more »
Hard to say, but I'm sure you have options. Assuming you and the dog have bonded and love each other, I'd get a value for this one and assuming it is lower than $3,000.00 I'd demand the difference from the seller, if it were me.
If she does not return your dog, you may apply to the court for an order of contempt (i.e. that she did not comply with the court's order) and serve it on her. There will be additional legal penalties imposed on her for doing so.
You should be able to make a claim with SDGE for personal property damage for your dog, and the driver and/or the company may also be liable for animal cruelty. If SDGE denies your claim, you may be able to sue for civil damages.
A California attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. There are animal law attorneys here who would have the strongest insight into legal issues with service animals, and you could reach out to them at this point. However, from an international law/health care law...Read more »
I stay at my brother's house but the dog is mine and I had my dog in a locked crate and this 5'2" person stuck their hand to try to pet my little 8 lb toy dog and was bitten. Tiny bite, now they are suing my brother, they are clearly in search of a free ride. Am I the actual party... Read more »
I think you have a defense if the dog was actually in the crate at the time of the bite. Did your brother say it was okay to stick their finger into the crate? You should sit down with a defense attorney and get some answers to your questions. And ask your brother if he has a homeowners policy....Read more »
they let me in. When I started hiking, the park ranger stopped me and gave me a ticket for not having a dog license. I just got the dog from my friend to stay with me for a bit and didn’t know about dog licensing. I have to appear in court and I don’t know what the procedure will be like. The... Read more »
Not knowing about dog licensing is not a defense to violating the law. If the dog wasn't yours, that might be a defense. You would have to look up the licensing ordinance to see what it says and whether it applies to you or just to the owner. If the dog is yours now, get it licensed. You...Read more »
My daughter was living with us, and she left two months ago, she left to work and hasn't been back since. She is having her episodes(bipolar with schizophrenic tendencies) at the moment and wants her dog, but she hasn't called or came to see him since she left that day to work, and we... Read more »
Give her the dog back. She was having a medical emergency, not abandoning a dog. If the dog was abandoned, you should have surrendered it to Animal Control, then adopted it through appropriate legal channels. What you are attempting to do sounds like theft.
