I believe my dog was stolen and put up for adoption.

My dog was stolen from me, but I was made to believe she ran away and I was lured all directions chasing after her trying to find her. Later on, I found out that she was in an animal shelter the whole time. At the time I didn't have means to make a post online. I was physically searching for her. I now can get online regularly and was able to find my dog, but she was adopted. I've made three attempts to contact the people who adopted her, but no one has contacted me back. I want my dog back. She was stolen from my yard. I believe it was a distraction so my dog would be adopted. The previous owner's roommate kept trying to get my dog but couldn't because I involved legal. How can I get my dog back?

How can I get my dog back after giving her up?

As of May 14, 2010, I gave up my dog to Love-A-Stray, in Avon, OH. A week later I wanted her back, and I contacted the volunteer who I dealt with, and she told me in no uncertain terms, how dare I. After sending her emails due to my family wanting to take the dog to a shelter, I was forced to give her up. Apparently, this volunteer felt she had the right to tell me I would have to pay $125 to get her back. Then she proceeded to tell me she would take me to court and use my mother against me. My mother said she would never do that. I never abused this dog, I loved her as if I gave birth to her myself. I want my dog back, and the family who has her now should understand how awful this rescue place is. What steps can I take to get my dog back?

I want my foster cat that was adopted back.

I am a foster parent and I was tricked by a customer. They adopted a cat from me and I did not notice that they put a PO Box into the address line. The driver license number is wrong too and her phone number is to her work place. Once I noticed, I asked her to provide an address, and she refused saying that she doesn’t feel comfortable doing so. I am very concerned about my foster cat. I have no idea where the cat is currently and she won’t cooperate. She told me that I signed the papers so now the cat is hers, and she said to take her to court. Can I legally demand the cat back?

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.
