As her husband, you unquestionably had a greater say about this situation than any Section 8 agency.
You might be able to make some headway reporting her for animal cruelty if the health of the cats are endangered. As for her own health, that is really something for her to decide for... Read more »

No, as long as you meet with following requirements:
Your licensed healthcare professional must determine that you have a need for more than one emotional support animal to alleviate symptoms of your mental illness.

Maybe depending on whether there is evidence the animal bit someone before and the circumstances surrounding the incident.
For example, many cities have a leash law that requires an owner to restrain a dog inside a fence or on a leash. If the dog was not so restrained and bit you, it may... Read more »

Saying you will pay at the end of February isn’t pet abandonment.
Refusing to pick up your pet and pay for past boarding as requested probably gives the boarder the right to take your pet to the local animal shelter unless you have a written agreement that requires the boarder to keep... Read more »

But your mom had a duty to keep her dog in her own yard. So your mom could share some of the legal responsibility.
And your damages will be measured by the price or value of the pup.
It’s clear by the damage on the fence that it was pushed from his side, also my dog is in heat which would explain why his unfixed male dog wanted to get through so badly. On top of this, my dog is a pure bread GSD which I had intentions on breeding, her puppy’s would have sold for a minimum of... Read more »

answered on Jan 4, 2023
If you notified the animal shelter of your ownership, the shelter is required to continue to hold the dog for five days from the date it was impounded (not from the date you notified the shelter) for you to come and pick up your dog. As long as you appeared at the shelter with the proper funds to... Read more »
We boarded our 9 month old dog in September for a weekend (Thursday-Sunday).

If you can show the boarding facility was negligent in boarding your dog, you may be entitled to the monetary value of one pup.
You can file a lawsuit in small claims court if the value of one pup sired by your registered dog is less than $20,000.
The fact your dog jumped the fence... Read more »
The officer obligated me to hand over the dog. I took the woman who stole my dog to court and they found in my favor. The police bent over backwards FOR HER.

It is not the mayor's job, or that of the city attorney, police department, or state attorney general, to help you enforce your judgment against the women who stole your dog.

When dogs got out by being 73 my cousin pick me up.My neighbor found them took them to the pound. I have had the dogs for years. Can I be changed with abundance
answered on Nov 21, 2022
I am unfamiliar with “abundance.”
Just go to the pound with their registration and vaccination cards and pick them up. There might be a small fine for allowing them to run at large and there might be additional fines if they aren’t registered and vaccinated. But this should not be a big deal.

You should report the abandoned cattle to your local sheriff's office. If you just want the cattle gone, they will notify the owner and then impound the cattle if they are not removed within five days.

I work at my apartment building. There was a tenant who, since the day they moved in, had not paid rent or anything (august-October). Not sure how they were able to move-in in the first place. My managers filed for eviction. They went into his apartment and room to hand him the paperwork. They... Read more »
answered on Nov 3, 2022
If the dog belonged to the tenant, only the tenant had legal authority to give the dog away. Your manager had no legal right to tell you that you could keep the dog because the dog did not belong to your manager.
Your better argument is that the tenant abandoned the dog. If the tenant... Read more »
In order to leave an emotionally abusive relationship, I had to leave without my dogs. The dogs were abandoned in our care by his sister 3 years ago.

Since the dogs were given to you both, you own them as tenants in common.
You can petition a court to partition them in kind or to have them sold and divide the proceeds equally between the two of you.

You can file a suit for "replevin." Such a suit seeks the return of a specific item of personal property (other than money) in possession of the other party that rightfully belongs to you. In this case, the item is the dog.
Because I was waiting for them to take off the unauthorized pet fees before I could pay the rent then took off the pet fees but not the late fees. But the rent would have been paid had they not added unauthorized charges do I have to pay the late fees?
answered on May 19, 2023
As long as you timely paid your rent minus the unauthorized pet fee, you should not owe any late fee.
On the other hand, if you didn’t timely pay your rent because of the additional unauthorized pet fee, you should still owe the late fee because you did not pay the undisputed amount owed on time.
What can I do about this. I have my dog on video trying to get to it through the fence and also all the food on the other side of the fence.
answered on May 9, 2023
Talk to your neighbor and ask them to stop.
If they refuse, you can build a tall sturdy opaque fence and plant shrubs with thorns and thick roots along the property line or build a dog run on the opposite side of your yard.
If I brought her in, they would charge me $250 nonrefundable she can’t stay in the car she needs to be with me.

If the dog is a registered service dog (like a seeing eye dog) and not an emotional support animal (ESA), the hotel is in violation of the ADA. As a disabled person, you can likely sue the hotel for disability discrimination.
