Post: Need "Legal Eagle" help ASAP
Posted by Rowena on 1/16/07
Long story short, our shelter had a B&G surrendered to us
in the middle of the night last November. The previous
owner was homeless and addicted poor girl! We took the
bird out of a terrible living situation and have
rehabilitated him, vetted him, and have him adopted out to
a new home.
Now, the previous owner is trying to get him back saying
she needs him to pay off a money debt to her supplier.
She did not sign a surrender form at the time, but we have
verifiable witnesses to state that she came to us and
requested that we take her bird. Including the manager of
the pet shop where she had used to work.
What can or need we do to both protect this bird and
ourselves? Any "legal eagles" out there? Thanks.
