My breeder friend was caring for my animal in another state for the summer. My friend had a nervous breakdown and drove her car into a building of a previous employer at a high rate of speed and is currently on life support with no power of attorney
. The family agreed to allow me to take my pet which is fully registered to myself alone. I made arrangements with my employer to take two days off work, rented a car and traveled a 6hr drive one way to visit my friend and bring my animal home to care for. Upon arrival the family refused to allow me to do so and claimed a local breeder was going to care for my friends animals. I don't know this person, nor trust them. I also found out my animal has been bred which makes this now a medical emergency considering none of the family has experience in birthing. What can I do? I'm heartbroken
JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And just to clarify, what paperwork has been filed?
Customer: This is in the state of New York, I was advised by the police and TICA to take his to court and file an injunction but I'm 6hrs away and honestly broke after taking the time off work and car rental
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: I've been trying, the only attorney I've spoken to thathe doesn't find this humorous is the legal representation
of TICA. She is supposed to find an attorney in the area and said considering this animal is valued at $3500 and across state lines, not in possession
of who I agreed to care for her, it's considered a federal offense
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes, the lawyer from TICA is in new York, NY and the location of my friends home is close to Canada
