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.
What Type Of Course Would I Take, In College If I Wanted To Become A Malpractice Lawyer?
You would have to go to law school to be a malpractice lawyer. To do that you must go to a 4 year college or university and get a bachelors. Law Schools don't require a major for entrance so you can do anything you want with your undergraduate degree. Popular Major Choices are Pre-Law (Cross Discipline), Political Science, Psychology, and Philosophy. But their are many that go in with math majors, biology/chemistry/physics majors, engineering majors, business majors...it really just depends on what you like. Once you get into law school and get your required law classes out of the way you can start specializing in malpractice law.
Can My Lawyer Stop The Divorce If I'M Being Harrassed And Pregnant?
Long Story Short My Husband Was Cheating, Asked Me To Move Out And 2 Days After I Did, Filed For Divorce. I Am 5 Months Pregnant With Our Second Daughter. We Both Had Lawyers Until He Fired His For &Quot;Financial Reasons&Quot; And Now He Is Representing Himself. Last Week He Met With My Lawyer And Told Him That He'S Going To Fight For Sole Custody Of Our 1 Yr Old Daughter. He Claims I'M &Quot;Unfit&Quot; And &Quot;Unstable&Quot; And Is Petitioning The Court To Give Me A Hair Drug Test- Which I Would Fail Because I'Ve Been A Regular Smoker For Years. He Claims To Be Doing It For Our Daughters Health Except I Never Smoke Near Her, Have Never Done So. He Was Fine With It The Whole Time We Were Married And For The Last Year Since She'S Been Alive But Now It'S A Problem- Mainly Because He'S Trying To Hurt Me And It'S The Only Leverage He'S Got.
He Has Been Sending Me Text Messages- Some I Respond To But Lately I'Ve Been Saying &Quot;Please Stop Texting Me&Quot; Or &Quot;Leave Me Alone&Quot;. He Will Stop For A Few Hours And Then Start Again. Is This Harrassment? How Many Times Do I Have To Say &Quot;Stop&Quot; For It To Be Considered Harrassment?
My Mom Is Telling Me That My Lawyer Can Ask Him To &Quot;Cease And Desist&Quot; And That All The Proceedings Should Be Stopped Because The Stress Is Affecting Myself And Our Unborn Child. I Have Lost 4 Lbs Since Friday, Haven'T Been Sleeping Or Eating Much. Our Daughter (Fetus) Has Only One Artery In Her Umbilical Cord (Supposed To Have Two) And The Dr Said Stress Is A Key Factor In That. Can I Get This Madness To Stop Until After She Is Born? Please Someone Help Me!!
My Lawyer Is &Quot;In Trial&Quot; And I Haven'T Been Able To Consult Him... Thank You In Advance!
First, lets start with the "smoking" issue. Are we talking about tobacco or pot? If the later, then this can definitely hurt you in a custody case. The use of illegal drugs is one of the top reasons for someone to lose custody. Certainly, if you've been smoking (anything, but especially pot) while pregnant, you're going to look like a horrible person. No way to win that, except to stop all smoking, period.
As for harassment, he is to communicate only with your lawyer. Have you lawyer contact him (as he's his own lawyer) to remind him of that. If it doesn't work, your lawyer can assist you in taking further steps.
I Want To Be A Lawyer What Work Experience Should I Do?
I Want To Be A Lawyer What Work Experience Should I Do?
Im A Little Unsure On What I Could Do
Nothing until you are in law school. Any legal work experience you gain before law school will be of little help during or after law school. All you need to focus on is the two most important law school admissions factors: College GPA and LSAT; these two and not work experience is the key to getting into a good law school.
Best of luck.
If I Move Out Before The End Of The Month Can My Landlord Keep My Full Month'S Rent And Charge The New Tenant?
I Am Moving Out On The 7Th. I Asked My Landlord If He Would Be Prorating The Rent To Which He Replied, &Quot;Check Your Lease. I Do Not Prorate Rent Upon Exit.&Quot; This Is Stated In The Lease, Though I'M Not Certain It'S Legal If I Have Provided Proper Notice Of My Intent To Vacate (I Have). So My First Question...Is This Legal In The State Of Washington? Second Question...My Landlord Has Already Re-Rented The Apartment. The New Tenant Is Moving In The Afternoon Of The Day I Move Out And She Is Paying A Prorated Amount For The Month. Can He Legally Keep My Full Months Rent And Charge The New Tenant A Prorated Amount?
I would consult your local legal aid office or google the landlord tenant laws in your state. I manage an apartment community here in MI and I know that it's illegal to charge double rent for an apartment. If someone moves out in the middle of the month but is rent responsible until the end of the month, I can't move someone into that unit without refunding the previous tenant the difference.
To tell the truth...that's kind of gross (no offense to you of course) and maybe I am just being a little picky but shouldn't the unit be at least professionally cleaned and the carpets cleaned before someone else moves in? Kind of makes you wonder what you moved into doesn't it?
