Dear Customer,

Your remedy is to sue the client for breach of contract in small claims court (you can sue for breach of oral contract) - see: https://www.texasbar.com/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Consumer_and_Tenant_Rights1&Template=/CM/ContentDisplay.cfm&ContentID=24859

Unless the animal is creating a current hazard to life or property and you cannot safely leave the animal with its owner, there is no reason to leave it with animal control or a shelter (that is not their job).
