We adopted a dog in April that we were told was in good health, and fixed. What we got was a dog that had multiple health issues, and was only partially fixed - which is amazing, because the huge scar and still visible shaved area indicated that someone was inside doing something!! So, we noticed health issues 1 day after adoption, and brought out dog to our vet for analysis. Urinary tract infection. After a few days of loose stools, we went back, diagnosis - worms. In between the worms and the spay problem, we noticed the dog was going into heat - which was amazing because the adoption paperwork clearly states 'spayed female'. Hmmmm...who is doing the spaying? Someone finishing up a High School science project? Sooo, several unanswered emails to a variety of LHS staff - and a 'canned' email says 'As your adoption contracts states LHS takes all reasonable steps to safeguard the health of the animals at the shelter blah blah' I am guessing the 4 health issues qualify as breach of contract? Hmmmm, our lawyer seems to agree!! There are plenty of other places to adopt....I would recommend taking LHS off your list.
