Is it required by state law for the SPCA to let you know when you're adopting an animal that is special needs?
Animals sometimes (but not usually) are incubating an illness which is not obvious at the time of adoption. People who believe a charity acted fraudulently can file a complaint with the state’s Attorney General. People can also sue to try to get reimbursed for veterinary expenses (although it is often better to try to work out concerns with animal shelters in a more amicable manner and it is important to review the terms of the adoption agreement which may include provisions regarding veterinary care).
