Can rescue group take back re-homed dog?

I adopted a dog from a man who got her at a rescue. We have a written agreement. The rescue got wind and now wants me to return the dog to them or fill out an application. I don't agree with a couple of their policies so struggle with the app. I am happy to give references, home visit whatever to keep her. The dog is very shy and thriving in her new environment and I don't want her returned to the rescue. All communication has been with the previous owner, who is a really good person. I don't want problems for him. We both want what is best for the dog.

My wife adopted out my dog without my permission.

My wife adopted out my dog without my permission. Fill out a form online. Was told I could not back out after she filled out application. She had been told several times the dog was not to be adopted out. Do I have any chance of getting my dog back?

Adoptee is wrong for this cat.

Q: An adoptee is not returning a cat or our calls from the rescue. I found he falsified, and also did not follow rules regarding acclimating the cat. She's already escaped once and it's only been 10 days. They say they won't return her until they get another cat, but I fear for this cat's safety. What can I do?

Pet Legal Q&A: Adoption Agency Wants to Take our Cats Back

A cat adoption agency wants to take our cats back and is threatening legal action against us. We had some issues with the second cat and asked if we could exchange him for another one, the rescue obliged, but when they arrived they came with 2 carriers instead of one.
