A day in the life of a Cruelty Investigator
The poor dog will remain at the vet for 15 days. The owner has that amount of time to contact the sheriff's office to claim the dog. He will be given a summons for simple animal cruelty. The most likely outcome is that the owner will surrender the dog to avoid going to jail or receiving a guilty verdict. The police officer is going to try to make it impossible for the owner to get the dog back. I will go to court to ask the judge to release the dog to the Humane Society. If this does happen, we will need to raise money to pay the bill.
