Animal Adoption Protection Laws?
Are There Any Laws Protecting People Adopting Animals?
My Friend Adopted A Dog From A Local Pound. They Told Her That He Was De-Wormed, Up To Date On His Shots And Heart Worm Negative. She Noticed Over The Course Of A Week That He Coughed, Sneezed And Gagged Alot So She Took Him To The Vet. They Said That He Had Kennel Cough. He Hadn'T Been Around Any Other Animals In That Short Time So We Knew It Had Come From The Shelter. She Brought The Dog To My House Where I Have My Own. He Pottied On The Floor And We Noticed A Worm In Poop. To Make Sure We Checked When He Went To The Bathroom Later. Again We Found A Worm. She Has A 9 Month Old Daughter That Was Always Touching The Dog And He Had Been Around My Dog That Whole Night And Day. We Knew Nothing About The Disease And Feared For Both My Dog And Her Baby. We Asked Advice And Were Told To Take The Dog To The Pound And Drop Him Off. He Had A Microchip So They Were Able To Locate Her And Now Are Issuing Her A Citation For Abandoment. The Reason We Took Him Was Because She Had Already Paid For His Treatment Of The Kennel Cough. And Couldn'T Afford To Get Him Treated For Something Else. At This Point He Hadn'T Had His Vaccines Or Tests Done Because She Had Spent All Of The Money Put Aside For Those Treatments. We Wanted The Dog To Have A Chance And Could Think Of Nothing Else But To Give Him Back And Hope Someone Could Help Him. She Is Now Facing $4,000 Fine And 1 To 2 Years In Jail. We Had No Other Choice, She Has A Baby. In The Contract She Signed It Said That They Do Not Guaruntee A Healthy Animal. When She Signed They Gave Her A Brief Summary Of The Contract And Never Mentioned That. I Am A Witness To The Gentleman Sayin He Was Up To Date And That All He Needed Was His Rabies. We Never Got Paperwork. There Has To Be A Law Out There Protecting People From These Shelters Adopting Out Sick Dogs Or Cats. I Feel So Bad For These Poor Animals And Even Worse For Any Animals They May Come In Contact With Once Rehomed. If They Don'T Tell You There Is No Guarantee How Are You Supposed To Know? We Asked The Questions We Believed Were Necessary, Is He Sick? Are His Shots Up To Date? Heart Worm? But They Never Said Anything. I Think It Should Be Against The Law For These Shelters To Give Out Animals Without Checking Them For Sicknesses. It Makes Things Worse For Not Only These Families But The Animals They May Expose These Diseases To. Please Someone Help I Don'T Want To See Her Go To Jail Because She Tried To Help This Dog, She Has A Baby..
Something doesn't sound right to me with all of this (aside from the fact that it's posted in the wrong section). If the animal was dropped off at a shelter it was not abandonment unless someone just dropped it off by tying it out front in the middle of the night and leaving it there for someone to find in the morning.
I've worked for two large animal rescues over the years and people surrender animals all the time. The only person I've seen get charged was the guy who tied up his underweight (purebred) Bloodhound outside of the local PetSmart one night so that the manager found her tied up there in the morning.
If she (or you) just tied him up and left him at the pound then yes, I can see why someone was cited for that.
As to the state of the dog when your friend got him. Kennel Cough is a fairly common ailment and it's essentially just an upper respiratory infection brought on by contact with other dogs in a kennel type situation and by excessive barking. Its easily treatable if you wanted to and generally goes away in two weeks on it's own if left untreated. The worms are the same way. One or two pills (depending upon the size of the dog) and the worms are generally gone. In most cases they want to give a second dose in a couple of weeks just to make sure that they are gone. If your friend had taken the dog to a vet she would have had, perhaps, a $100 vet bill for everything.
It's entirely reasonable that the dog was up on the shots (excluding rabies), had been dewormed and was vet checked and that it could still have worms and kennel cough after having been in a kennel. They are common and easily treatable conditions for a dog in that situation and was nothing to panic about. Any contract from a shelter that I have ever worked with does state what the condition of the animal is at the time it was adopted BUT it also says that the new owners are to get the animal vet checked within a period of time after adoption, usually 7 days. Sounds to me like she didn't do that and that everyone over reacted and left the animal in some unreasonable situation at the shelter that constituted abandonment.
Next time, take the animal to the shelter when it's open and drop it off properly. People who do that do not get cited for abandonment.
Should I Give Legal Custody?
Hi Looking For Some Advice
I Am In The Military And I Was Divorced About 3 Years Ago While I Was In Iraq My Ex Moved To Colorado Since Then I Have Had Joint Custody Of My Children I Have Paid Child Support As I Have Been Directed And I Have Even Given More When I Had It. I Know That I Can Not Always Make It To Colorado To Be With My Sons Because I Am Stationed In Oklahoma. About Two Days Ago My Ex Tells Me She Is Going To Take Me To Court So She Can Get Legal Custody On My Sons. She Tells Me She Wants It So That She Does Not Have To Ask Me For Signatures Or Come To Me In Order To Get Things Done. I Do Not Want To Give Up Legal Custody She Tells Me That It Would Make It Better For The Boy I Do Not Believe This. Even Though We Have Joint Custody She Is Never Telling Me Anything About My Sons Or Letting Me Know What Is Going On She Also Tries Very Hard To Keep My Children Away From Their Grandparents My Mom And Dad And Even Makes It Hard For Me When I Want To See Them I Think That She Is Breaking The The Rules Of The Joint Child Support. My Real Question Is Should I Give Up Legal Custody Or Not And Is She In Violation Of The Joint Custody
Please Let Me Know Thank You
What she wants is Sole Custody, which will give her 100% control. You should fight this and do more to be receiving info on the children. File a motion to enforce, and ask for her to pay a cash or certified court bond of $2000, which gets forfeited to you, should she violate your rights again to the info. Note, if the original jurisdiction was Oklahoma, you can fight Colorado getting it. Transfer of jurisdiction is not mandatory under federal law, only allowed.
There is a lot you can be doing to enforce your rights, without running up legal bills. Are you recording your conversations with her, without her knowing it? This is legal in both your states, Okla. Stat. tit. 13 § 176.3 & Colo. Rev. Stat. § 18-1.3-401.
As for your grandparents, counter file to include this in your orders, as well as a requirement that she provide transportation for when the kids come see you. Has your orders been modified for long distance?

Criminal Defense Lawyer For Kids?
I Have Always Wanted To Be A Criminal Defense Lawyer...But Now, That I'Ve Thought More About It I'M Thinking Differently...I Still Want To Defend But Not Adults...Is There A Specific Type Of Law Where The Lawyer Defends Kid Criminals? Thats What I Would Like To Do. Any Help Is Appreciated...Thanks, A Lot! :D ♥
The existing laws for Juvenile Offenders is aimed at correctional method and not punish them. Hence there is little need for a lawyer to defend them .
In fact, the following News , Published in the Hindu daily dated 29-01-2008 is interesting :-
"A person cannot be denied government employment, even in the police force, for having committed a criminal offence when he/she was a juvenile, the Madras High Court ruled on Monday"
"He said Parliament, while enacting the Act, had been careful enough to ensure there was no provision to convict or punish a juvenile in conflict with the law. The Act lays down a non penal protective system for children accused of committing criminal offences"
“No one is a born criminal...Lots of children in this country, who are not taken care of by their parents and relatives, due to poverty and other reasons, at times land into the hands of anti-social elements. The latter corrupt the minds of the juveniles and train them to develop delinquent propensities,” he said.
“In this alarming situation, it is the constitutional duty of the State to create a conducive atmosphere for juveniles to re-establish themselves in society, family life, education and employment. The juveniles should be relieved of psychological factors looming large in their minds and they should be kept free of any stigma,” the Judge observed.
Is Stem Cell Research Legal?
So, I Get That The Killing Of Little Baby Fetuses Is Bad, But The Question Is, The Research That Is Being Done Is Legal, Isn'T It? If You Can'T Answer That, Tell Me Where In America Is Abortion Illegal? Thank You For The Information In Advance!
It's completely legal.
I personally don't see anything wrong with stem cell research. It's not like the government is forcing women to have abortions to drive the research. If an embryo or fetus is going to be aborted, which is completely the choice of the woman, it could possibly save lives or vastly improve the quality of life for some people as a result.
What Is The Best Black'S Law Dictionary To Buy?
I Am Starting Law School This Coming Fall. Someone Told Me To Get One; But I Have To Idea Which One. There Are So Many Editions And Different Kinds. Help!
Don't buy any of them. Blacks is really expensive as I am sure that you know. Almost every law school will give you free westlaw and lexisnexis (which are very expensive, and expansive legal research web sites). Westlaw has a search box for Blacks on their website. It is quicker and cheaper than looking it up in a book.
