Non profit group stole my horse while I was out of town helping a terminally ill family member who had cancer. The horse was kept in a pasture at a boarding facility.The board was current. Supposedly, the owner of the property called this non profit horse rescue to take my horse. He had previously tried to get Animal regulation to remove him but they would not.This non profit group came with a truck and trailer and stole my horse.
The group acted as though it was a mistake, that they would take care of him until I could get him since they removed him illegally. I spent 2 years trying to save 2 family members lives,unfortunately they both died.
I kept in contact with the non profit horse rescue the entire time. Now I told them I 'm ready to get my horse and they are now trying to say I need to pay several thousands of dollars! They have no court order, no boarding agreement and if they are Non profit, I don't see how they can charge a boarding fee. They stole my horse,now say they want thousands I would not have left him there if i would have know this I though they were helping
The fact they are not for profit has no bearing on the issue. Hire an attorney.
