Question

Is there anyway to get my dog back? I surrendered my little dog 6-3-2020. I wanted to reclaim my dog, and I went back within 24 hours, but the shelter had already adopted him out.

Answer

People who surrender their animals generally have no further legal right to those animals. Regrets do not equal rights. As I am sure you have now realized, it is so very important to carefully consider the decision to rehome an animal before doing so, not after.
