Lied about returning my dog to me. I have all emails that took place. Before the 14 day period
You should consult with an attorney who has expertise in animal law and shelter disputes. Frequently, the shelter's require that anyone surrendering a dog to their care also surrender ownership at the same time. If you have a different agreement with the shelter where you surrendered the dog, you will need to attempt to prove that in court.
