Carson Animal Shelter Complaint - Missing Cat- 8 days from today
CARSON, CALIFORNIA -- My cat was missing. When I found out she was in the Animal shelter on Friday December 29th, I immediately went over there to claim her. I needed sufficient papers to show ownership and that she had her shots. I told them I would bring them back the next day. They told me I would have to wait because of the New Years holiday they wouldn't be open, that they wouldn't be open until Tuesday.
On Tuesday I went there with my papers and the amount they were asking to get her back, I was told 15 minutes prior to me getting there, that my cat was taken to a clinic in their vacinty to get some shots and during that time she bolted out and escaped.
I was so upset. I couldn't believe it. I asked them how this can be, that I told you when I put a hold on her that she had all her shots. They didn't have good answers for me, nor could they even look me in the face. How can people in this profession be so careless in losing a pet? They forgot and left the door open?
I was told that I could come back at a later time. Or they would call me as soon as they caught her because they had traps up to catch her. One trap is all they had up. I doubt very much my baby would go back into one of those traps. So I asked if I could come back at night, which I did, and there was no luck.
Well, it is now the six days and I still havent got my cat back. I feel in my heart that something is not right. Or that they are not being honest with me.
Be more responsible, find my cat. And apologize for your carelessness and fix your problem.
Just to let you know that I am thankful for any support. I will try to reply to all the messages
concerning my baby. But as for right now. I am still out looking for her. I wanted to clear a few things up. A neighbor behind my house
trapped her using honey baked ham. That is how she ended up at the Animal Shelter. Yes, she has been licensed for the last two years. Since I rescued her, and her brother whom I bottled fed from the time they were five hours old. We bonded and since I have no children, they are my children. They both have their personalities
that are unique. Right now I feel apart of me is missing and I will not give up until I find her. My next attempt is to set up camp near the vacinity maybe that will help. Because I don't think they are really helping to to return my cat to my safety.
