The dog shelter gave my dog to the wrong person. This person claimed that they were the owner when they weren't, and I want my dog back. What can I do if the shelter won't resolve this?
People who want to try to get an animal returned can sue. I suggest you immediately consult with an attorney in your state. People can also contact the police if they believe fraud was involved in getting possession of an animal (although unless the police have evidence that a crime was committed it is unlikely they will get involved). Good luck!
