Dear Customer,

If I understand correctly, you are concerned about an animal abuse/neglect problem with a neighbor, where the animal does not have access to water due to ice on their water source.

You have already called animal control multiple times, but have had no success in remedying the problem.

If you have not had success with animal control there are two other agencies you can call: first is the sheriff or police department (depending on whether you are within or outside the city limits for your jurisdiction, animal control is generally overseen by one of these entities, and they may want to look into the level of care being taken); and the other is the County District Attorney's Office (the DA is the top law enforcement agency/official in the County and has jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for animal abuse/neglect, as well as having oversight over animal control).

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
