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, and is... 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).

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.

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 »

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 someone,...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 "business". We... 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.

You can always bring a claim. The question is whether or not you'd be successful. If you bought an animal and it came down with a sickness a few days later like it did here you may have a strong claim against the seller. However, the seller may have had you sign documentation that the animal was...Read more »
I was asked if someone could bring their mom and pups out temporarily and put them in my garage. I noticed no one had been out to feed or water them or let them out. I went in garage and found starved puppies living in their own feces. I have asked the owners to come get them and clean my garage.... Read more »
This isn't a personal injury question, but you have a few options. You can 1) Take care of the dogs or 2) Call the Indy Humane Society and have them come get them, their number for Indianapolis is (317) 872-5650. If you do neither you could possible be charged with animal neglect or cruelty....Read more »
There is not set time for when property becomes abandoned. Whether or not property is truly abandoned is determined by the intent and actions of the owner. In this case it sounds like your former roommate has told you that they do not care what happens to the dogs and that you can do whatever you...Read more »
I know someone who has a dog and she let her roommates shoot him just because they found him annoying. They shot him in the face with a shot gun. He has never bit anyone or hurt a fly. I want justice for this dog what can I do.
Report these people to the local police ASAP. YOU cannot do anything but report it to the police. The POLICE can and should charge the shooter AND the owner with Animal Cruelty under § 35-46-3-12. The penalty is up to one year in jail UNLESS the animal dies, then it is a FELONY with up to three...Read more »
I previously worked at a dog boarding facility. A dog was left for weeks, and his owner eventually came back saying that she could not afford to pay the bill that had accrued, and she did not have a place to live to take him home to. My manager came to an agreement with her that if the dog came... Read more »
This is an interesting dilemma. On the one hand, you have put countless resources, time and effort into the dog. On the other hand, you never explicitly told this woman that you were taking ownership of the dog and she clearly did abandon her dog or relinquish ownership of the dog, only possession....Read more »
The dog can fit through our fence and the city has issued multiple tickets and taken him to court twice now since declaring it vicious and dangerous. It's a poodle and my neighbor thinks it isn't a big deal. The fact that my son is disabled and can't protect himself really makes this a huge issue... Read more »
