The answer to your question depends on the definition of "animal cruelty" under Oklahoma statutory law. If you are still interested in learning whether the vet's treatment is covered, hire a lawyer who specializes in animal law in Oklahoma.
If you were married to the ex, then it depends on whether the dog was separate property or marital property. If the dog was separate property, then, the ex may keep the dog. If the dog was marital property, then you have a claim to the dog.
There are no custody rights to dogs. Either you own the dog or your ex boyfriend does. You state he gave you the money to adopt the dog. Was the money a gift? If so and the paperwork as you claim has your name on it, the dog is yours and you can get it back through a small claims action. If he...Read more »
I've asked him multiple times to move them and he won't. Agreed on a date and that day came and went. Now since it's winter I have to feed them and I just want them gone. Don't know what's the right thing to do to get this process done.
He apparently is a neighbors dog, some man came and asked for him back the first time he was at our house and I suggested a vet appointment and a good bath...a week later (today) the dog is back and in same condition ..can I keep him?

We live out in the country in Oklahoma. Our neighbour is trying to sue ONLY because our dog sometimes chases her kids when they walk home from school. The dog hasnt bit her or anything. Can she sue for this?
Anybody can sue anybody else. The question is would your neighbor have a cause of action that wouldn't be tossed out of Court for failing to state a cause of action. Your neighbor could sue but would lose under your set of facts set out herein.
She is 19 and received virtually no training on how to handle situations like that other than to squirt them with a water bottle. There were 3 employees watching 70 dogs. She wasn’t even allowed to leave to get medical treatment even though she was bitten quite badly. What legal actions can she... Read more »

If its a recurrent problem, possibly a class action. The law treats pets like objects.They have a certain retail value, and the value of your pet based on resales for dogs of that age, variety, condition is what youi get--what it meant to you, you don't get.
