How can I get back my dogs who my friend surrendered?


My supposed to be "friend" surrendered my dogs without my permission. She was only to babysit them for a weekend when I had to go out of town. How can I get them back? They were only 6 weeks old at the time & no paperwork yet.


If simply asking for the return of animals does not work out, sometimes lawsuits are commenced. These cases can become complicated if the person who surrendered the animals and the person alleging to be the animals’ “owner” have different “facts” regarding the animals’ “ownership” or their agreement concerning the surrender of the animals. These cases can become even more complicated if the animals have already been adopted. I hope that the animals’ best interests are being considered.
