Hi we found a dog and reported it to the local shelter in California. They have now put out a Facebook post asking for anyone in the area to come forward. She is not chipped and was found with a dog collar but no tag, which leads us to think she may have been abandoned. When can we reasonably... Read more »
This friend is my husband's cousin. He asked us to watch her because he moved to an apartment, which they couldn't have pets. He doesn't come to see her at all, doesn't buy her food, doesn't ask how she is doing. I have been buying everything for the dog. It doesn't... Read more »
You can't just take somebody else's dog because you don't think he's a good owner. You agreed to watch the dog. You didn't put a time limit on it, or apparently even ask for funds to pay for food, or to pay for kenneling. If you want to change the terms of that deal, you...Read more »

No good deed goes unpunished!! Didn't think it was a big deal? Have you read all the entries on Justia in Animal/Dog Law and seen the way people go crazy about their animals! You were trying to be a good Samaritan, but you didn't call animal control first to see what you were getting...Read more »

Report the dog as stolen to the particular police department in Indiana. If that isn't effective, you would need to retain Indiana attorneys to initiate a replevin action, or perhaps that can be done in Indiana Small Claims. Consult with an Indiana attorney for more specific information.

You should check your state law to see if shelters have immunity from liability as long as they post a dog as found on their website for whatever the statutorily required time frame.

If the police say you need to go to small claims, then that is what you need to do. You cannot control the future actions of other people. Sue for $10,000, and if they destroy the dog, you can make them pay full value. Unfortunate but that is all you can do. If seeking money, small claims can...Read more »

Call the police. Report the dog stolen. If the police won't intervene, sue in Small Claims court. You can sue for an Order to return property, and you can also seek a money judgment for "loss of use" of your property at a daily rate for the reasonable rental value. That is going...Read more »

As far as the ashes, if you paid for them, and are otherwise current in your account with the vet, you are entitled to your property. This would be a Small Claims case as the ashes are...Read more »
