This is the whole story...
My wife and I had to leave town on businees so I left the kids, 8 year old son, 4 year old daughter and the dog with my parents.
We got home yesterday around 5 in the evening, my mom called to see if anyone had called about the dog because he got out.
This morning, the animal control people called to tell us they found our dog last night and that his license had expired. I had never received the new tag, but had a receipt for it saying he was legal. After going around with them for a bit, they finally agreed that we could come and pick him up at the humane society. There would be a $25 dollar fine.
Ok, so I call my parents and tell them they get to pay $25 and that they needed to go pick him up.
15 minutes later, I get a call that the lady went down to get him, but he was dead.
I got quite upset and yelled at her and wanted more information. Her supervisor, who picked him up, was out of state on vacation. I demanded that she gate ahold of the supervisor because I wanted answers! Had they called last night, my dog would still be alive.
She called back, saying she couldn't get a hold of her supervisor, so I got the name of her supervisors boss, the commissioner of public safety. He has called and is looking into what they were supposed to have done. I am still waiting to hear the legal ramifications.
