Need to remove husband’s cat from my house.

My husband's hybrid domestic cat (very expensive) makes messes constantly, brakes my property, pees, and poo's in virtually every room of the house and is unsafe around my newborn baby (has slapped him in the past and cannot be trusted around the baby- but with additional caution since I am not aware of another occurrence). My husband and I currently have serious relationship issues (not just related to the cat) and he does not seem to care enough for the welfare of my baby, or my quality of life to do something about his cat or comply with my request to remove it. How can I remove the cat legally? Am I forced to live with this cat until my husband moves out? Only my name is on the mortgage since my husband moved in with me before we married.

Is there any way to get my dog back?

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.

Can I adopt Shop Cat I’ve been caring for during quarantine?

I have been sheltering a cat during quarantine for a shop that didn’t have a plan to care for the cat during quarantine when no one would be visiting the shop on a regular basis. There was no clear agreement about how long I was taking him for. When I picked up the cat, he was extremely dirty. I have cared for him and bought him food for two months. I’ve spent every day and all day with him. He’s extremely well cared for. The shop owner who lives in NYC only part time now wants the cat back in the shop, but I’m scared he’s going to be traumatized. I would like to adopt him but they said no. What are my rights?

My friend gave me a dog now wants it back. What can I do?

A friend of mine gave me a dog 3 days ago after he was asked several times if he was sure on rehoming him. Two days later he texted saying he would be back in a week to get the dog. His reason was his partner missed the dog after telling him to rehome the dog because she couldn’t handle a puppy and a new born baby. But still pregnant, decided she can all of the sudden handle an 8 month old puppy whom was underweight and had bald patches when we received him. What can I do?

How can we legally acquire this dog we found?

We found this dog and he was in horrible condition. Fleas covered is body. After giving the dog a thorough bath, the whole tub was covered in blood from how bad the infestation was. We fell in love with him. A week later, the owner finally contacted us. We had to give him back because legally that's how it works.

Can we “rescue” our roommates cat?

My fiance & I rented an apartment with my fiance's friend of over 20 years and the friends boyfriend. We moved in 1 month later than planned (still payed rent for the month we missed) and when we got there the roommate had obtained a cat saying that its just "HER" cat. But almost immediately, like 1 month later they started starving and completely ignoring the cat. They haven't fed her for at least 2 months as I write this, my fiance and I have kept this cat alive.

Whose dog is she?

So my ex and I got a dog together and since I have mental illness we got an ESA letter from my psychiatrist. But my ex took her and registered her under her name at city hall. Can I get her back anyway?

How do I go about the adoption process?

There is a lady who lived near me and knew my cousin. She had a ton of dogs and decided to give some away. She gave a dog to my cousin, but after a short amount of time he no longer wanted the dog, and ended up giving the dog to my mother and our family. We've had the dog for about a year, and I wanted to get him his vaccinations and have him cleaned, but I can't because I don't have legal adoption papers. Is there any way that I can adopt him legally, and if so, how would I go about the adoption process. I don't want them to take my dog away. He means the world to me.

Original owner wants the dog that he surrendered.

Last week, we found a 16 week old puppy with health issues. We called the number on his collar, and the person stated that he did not want him anymore. The dog is registered in our household now, and has visited our vet already. Recently, the original owner said he regrets that he gave him away, and he is demanding that we give him back. Is there any legal action he can take to actually take him back? Can we fight it?
