|Just wanted to post this.
In December 2011, I had to move on short notice and was unable to take my beagle, Rudy with me. She was taken to a new animal shelter that opened a few blocks away. My family requested to board her for a few days until we could find a family friend to care for her, we offered to pay for her expenses and the manager agreed to care for her.
We were given paperwork asking for information on my dog's habits, behavior, etc... I went by the shelter numerous times, to drop off food, make other donations and visit my dog. After explaining my situation to my new landlord, he added Rudy as a second pet, in addition to Bentley who we already had. Called the shelter on a Wednesday and informed the manager who said my dog would be there until I came to pick her up on friday. I then learned he lied and adopted her out the very next day! I was very upset.
Went by the shelter and found out Rudy was truly gone. I was so angry and yelled so loud anyone across the street probably heard me. I've tried to get a copy of the paperwork that was filled out but all requests have been denied repeatedly and haven't been able to find out who has her either. Because there was no signed contract or verbal agreement authorizing for my dog to be put up for adoption, I consider her being adopted out completely unauthorized.
Since then, I've been posting ads online, printing flyers and have told different people about my case. I miss Rudy with all my heart an I'm determined to find her and bring her home where she belongs.
I have her papers(she's a purebred dog) and medical records, photos and even her I.D. tag.
I have a follow up appointment coming up with a lawyer who happens to be an animal lover and specializes in cases involving dogs.
It's been very nerve wracking, especially since almost 2 weeks ago was the 6 year anniversary of when I brought Rudy home.
I've had her since she was a puppy and she means a lot to me.
