I had gotten her spade and 3 yrs rabies shot--and... Read more »
Recently my landlord would not fix my smoke alarms my ceilings are 12ft tall and she said to just take out the batteries so it would stop beeping. So now she states I have to get rid of my dog because he "smells" which is false. The hall smells because the carpets are old.
4 months ago my kids dog was taken from my back yard. Today she ran up to our front door barking to be let in. Just like the past. She still answers to her name and has all the same markings. I made facebook posts and kept an eye out on my side of town. I asked people when they posted lost... Read more »
Sounds that you actually answered your own question. If the pet was stolen, the people who stole the pet did not have legal custody of the pet. It was a stolen pet, owned by your family. You family is rightful owner of the pet, and your family has custody of the pet. If you haven 't done...Read more »
First, you cannot "press charges," only the local prosecutor can "press charges." You do have a civil case of "conversion" against the dogs. However, that is not going to help you very much. There is no question that you are upset; however, you have few legal...Read more »
She was stolen off our back yard. They have a lot of other dogs in their home, before she was stolen she had never had intimate contact with any other male dogs. She is only a year old and beautiful so we believe they were trying to breed her since she is also an expensive breed of dog.
Yes, you can sue them in civil litigation for the theft, as well as the damage suffered to your property (the dog), including vet costs, the cost of the pregnancy and possibly even the cost of raising the pups. You should consult with an attorney in your area who handles civil litigation and animal...Read more »
You absolutely should have the original owner sign a transfer over to you, otherwise the owner could come back later and claim ownership of the dog. Additionally many vets will refuse to treat animals if you do not have proper paperwork showing ownership.
I have spoken to these neighbors twice before about these dogs and their aggressive behavior and have asked them to keep them restrained, they still keep letting them roam free. On 8/06/2018 these dogs came into my yard and attacked and injured one of my cats. I want to know what legal action I... Read more »
My neighbors said they are fed up with my moms dog barking on the occasion and that they are going to have members of the home owner association sign a petition asking to put the dog down. What I'm wondering is if they can ACTUALLY do that since the dog is not vicious, has never bit anyone,... Read more »
Absent some laws in the Indianapolis area (which is where Justia is telling me you are posting from), I am not familiar with any laws that would cause you to have to readopt your dog if it had been missing for a while.
The more likely scenario that I can think is that the shelter is...Read more »
None. Emotional support animals are not recognized under Indiana law or the Americans with Disability Act (ADA). Businesses and other organizations are not legally required to allow emotional support animals onto their premises, allow them to accompany their owners or accommodate them....Read more »

If your son lives with you your homeowner's will probably also cover his negligence. The best course of action here is to turn the matter over to your homeowner's. They are required to represent you in any legal matter where you may have exposure.
Bad neighborhood. My front yard has a 2 foot stone wall. The back has a 6 foot wooden fence. And the rest of my property boarder is marked with 1ftx8inch paving stones. No trespassing signs on all four sides of property (cover each gate and main entry point). My dogs lead will reach out into the... Read more »
The lease. She verbally attacked me in the home and he knew she had been texting me constantly and threatened me as well. Yet he knowingly brought her here to cause harm?plus dogs were inside during this
My cat was on the very end of the side of the road. My neighbor sped up and he went to the furthest right and purposely hit my cat , then took off and parked his truck in the garage! What can I do? There were 4 witnesses
In February my dog went lose & animal control got him after I got him out I had a court date for July. I no longer have the dog but the court wants proof. What kind of proof do I show I no longer have him?
If you need to prove that you no longer own the dog then you are going to have to show evidence of what happened to him. If you had the dog put down, a vet report and bill would show that, or the dog's medical records. If you sold the dog, show a receipt of sale. If you gave the dog to...Read more »
A neighbor dog came onto our property, damaged the fence to our chicken run and killed 12 out of 13 chickens. We raised most of these from chicks and has taken 9 months to get established enough to sell eggs. We literally just started selling eggs, being my 9 year old daughters... Read more »
You can ask the small claims court for up to whatever the limit is in your area. Justia has you tagged as 'Indianapolis.' If you are suing in Marion County I believe the limit is $8,000. Everywhere else in Indiana it is usually $6,000.
