My question involves court procedures for the state of: Ohio
How do I sue for third party animal custody?
A little background.
September 2016 a "breeder" sold my dog to me bc she couldn't spend enough time with all of her dog's (aka violating state dept of ag laws).
She told me my dog ate a corncob and needed surgery. What she didn't tell me is my dog needed 9 inches of necrotic tissue removed, renal failure, anemia and emaciated. Ffwd 19 mos, I've blindly fumbled through one worm and two protozoa parasites. A ridiculous amount of intestinal inflammation and two surgical procedures. Grand Total $4k and some change. My husband paid for it all from his profit sharing, it hasn't really hit us as hard as it sounds. He's agreed to let me capitalize on the situation, trying to gain custody of her breeding stock and turning them over to either concerned breeders with spay/neuter contracts.
In spite of my attorney's reassurance she can in fact pay me (she owns 30+ acres of agriculture zoned land), I don't want the money. I want the dogs. In warm homes, deshed in the summer, couches to surf and the occasional spoonful of peanut butter. And some Novox for the old guy.
Any thoughts on pulling this hairbrained idea off?
Note: humane officers are investigating concerning neglect. I'm trying to make this a "any which way you turn" situation. Thoughts on staying out of their way too?
