Foreclosure Pets

Companion animals are the silent victims of the continuing financial downturn. While record-number of companion animals are being surrendered to animal shelters across the U.S., far too many are being abandoned in- or outside of their foreclosed homes, most often without sufficient food, water or shelter. This results in real estate and foreclosure professionals finding abandoned pets (some deceased) inside foreclosed homes or locked in outdoor kennels. This webinar will discuss investigating the foreclosure pet case, including tips on proper legal procedures for seizing abandoned pets, and the issues that may arise when determining whether to prosecute and how to prosecute these cases.
