Did You Know...

That in many cases abandoned pets are considered personal property under the law and as such they may pass away without food or water due to certain court restrictions on personal property.  Contact your local authorities for assistance to prevent any unnecessary death.

Laws vary state to state and personal property laws have required timelines before a bank can take possesion.
