Chicago pound sued over adopted lost dog
CHICAGO – A Chicago woman said her dog had run away and been adopted by a new owner, despite having her name and phone number on her collar.
Zeus, a golden retriever, ended up in a pound and transferred to the Fetching Tails Foundation before being placed in a new home, Karly Moran-West said on Tuesday, a day after filing a complaint against Chicago Animal. Care and Control.
Moran-West, 20, also appealed to the new owner: Please give Zeus back.
“I understand that you have had Zeus for a long time and you are probably very attached to him now, but I have had him for a longer time and he was my child,” she said. “So I think you should have a heart and give me back my dog.” “
Animal Care and Control declined to comment, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Moran-West was visiting his sister in Los Angeles in January 2020 when Zeus escaped from his father’s court.
Moran-West, who wants to become a veterinarian, has conducted his own research. She said an informant told her that Zeus had been adopted under the same name.
Animal Care and Control told Moran-West that there was no phone number on Zeus’ collar, according to the lawsuit, but a public record request showed the dog was wearing his collar with the number when it has been processed.
‘I am blown away. … I think everyone in Chicago should be afraid of the situation, ”said his lawyer, Jonathan Rosen.
